Mozart Complete Piano Sonatas VOL.2
Artist/Band: Mehmet Okonsar
W. A. Mozart complete piano sonatas in 5 volumes by Mehmet Okonsar.
All sonatas by Mozart are in a three-movement form. The traditional formal structure of the classical sonata: a first movement with two contrasting themes followed by a slow movement and concluded with a Rondeau or similar fast and brilliant section is applied in almost all his piano sonatas.
For three of his sonatas Mozart changes that formal scheme: the Sonata in E-flat major K.282 starts with an Adagio followed by two menuettos and a finale, Allegro; the sonata in D major K.284 starts with an initial Allegro but is followed by a mid-movement named "Rondeau en Polonaise" and the ending is one Andante followed by twelve variations.
Finally the famous "Turkish March" sonata in A major K.331 starts with an "Andante grazioso" followed by six variations, the middle movement is a Menuetto and the finale is again a Rondeau: the famous "Alla turca" (Turkish March).
Mozart was not an innovator in the genre of the piano sonata like Beethoven was. His sonatas do not encompass his entire career and are not among his most important works. Yet in each of his "series of sonatas" we met with a composer in another stage of his creative life, a composer who already created the most significant works on that particular stage.
