Mitsuko Uchida plays Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 3 in B flat major, K 281 II. Andante amoroso.

“Mozart is a touchstone of the heart. If I want to show my love to a dear person, I sit down at the piano and play for her a piece of Mozart”. In these words the great Mozart interpreter Edwin Fischer expressed an essential message: every note Mozart wrote is a reflection of his character – affectionate, sensitive and yet at the same time powerful and virile, abounding both of inspiration and an early acquired masterly control comparable in some ways only with that of Johann-Sebastian Bach. Mozart’s ability to express the deepest thoughts with the fewest notes is why it is so difficult to play his music properly. Technical prowess alone won’t do it. It requires the ability of a feeling heart to express music as an affectionate communication between performer and listener. No other classical composer labeled a movement “amoroso” (Andante of the Sonata in B flat major, K. 281).
