MOZART: PIANO SONATAS
DIANA BOYLE

Diana Boyle's Mozart is special: recorded after years of deep thought and reflection on the spirit of the music, her touch is deft, light and delicate, well balanced and never disfigured by harshness. Fast passages trip along while the slower parts are wonderfully expressed. We believe this to be a landmark interpretation essential for even those who know (or think they know) these works inside out..

“Diana Boyle breathes fresh life into these sonatas… always supremely musical… this pianist's phrasing, use of dynamics and varied tempi revealing so many lovely facets. These fine performances take a welcome place on my shelves. She receives an excellent recording full of detail and presence, with her piano tone perfectly caught. There are notes in the form of an interview with the pianist.” - Bruce Reader (The Classical Reviewer)

“Boyle's interpretations are highly idiosyncratic... Her unique playing draws attention to unobvious textures and fascinating harmonies... I did find her interpretations refreshing.” – Sang Woo Kang (American Record Guide)

“ It's a lovely CD. Boyle makes the music sound fresh yet soothing. It's Mozart, played well: what more do you need to know?” – Jeremy Condliffe (The Chronicle)
