. . . Uchida's award-winning recordings of Mozart's piano sonatas: a project that brought her to worldwide attention.

This is unfailingly clean, crisp and elegant playing, that avoids anything like a romanticised view of the early sonatas . . . Uchida responds with the necessary passion to the forceful, not to say angst-ridden, A minor Sonata, K310. Indeed, her complete series is a remarkably fine achievement . . . excellent piano sound . . . an unqualified recommendation is in order for one of the most valuable volumes in Philips's Complete Mozart Edition.
