Julian Perkins (fortepiano)
Emma Abbate (fortepiano)

Following on from their earlier volume of piano works for four hands by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, pianists Julian Perkins and Emma Abbate here complete their survey.

This recording is performed on two period instruments from the Richard Burnett Heritage Collection of early keyboard instruments – a grand piano by Michael Rosenberger from c. 1800 and a square piano from the 1820s by London’s Clementi & Co.

Alongside the Sonatas in F major K497 and C major K19d, Robert D. Levin's completion of the fragmentary Allegro and Andante (Sonata) in G major K357 receives its first known recording. Also included is the Sonata in E-flat major by Mozart’s close contemporary Muzio Clementi.

'Emma Abbate and Julian Perkins play with an excellent sense of consort, making it difficult to believe that there are two people playing.'
