Mozart's Piano Sonatas K. 330, 331, 332, and 333 collectively represent a remarkable journey through the composer's exploration of form, emotion, and virtuosity.
Sonata in C Major, K. 330: The C Major Sonata, K. 330, opens with an effervescent Allegro that brims with melodic invention. The contrasting middle movement, Andante cantabile, showcases Mozart's lyrical prowess, while the concluding Allegretto bursts with joy and exuberance, demonstrating Mozart's ability to balance lightness and depth.
Sonata in A Major, K. 331 (Alla Turca): Perhaps one of Mozart's most famous piano sonatas, K. 331 features the celebrated "Alla Turca" movement. The first movement captivates with its variations on a theme, leading to the iconic Rondo Alla Turca, where Mozart playfully incorporates Turkish musical elements. This sonata is a testament to Mozart's ability to seamlessly merge classical elegance with lively innovation.
Sonata in B-Flat Major, K. 332: The B-Flat Major Sonata, K. 332, opens with a refined Allegro, showcasing Mozart's melodic inventiveness. The second movement, Adagio, is an exquisite exploration of expressive depth, while the final Allegro assai is a spirited conclusion marked by its rhythmic vitality and technical brilliance.
Sonata in B Minor, K. 333: Closing the set, the B Minor Sonata, K. 333, is a work of profound emotional depth. The first movement, Allegro, introduces a sense of drama, followed by the Andante cantabile, where Mozart weaves a beautiful tapestry of lyricism. The concluding Allegretto grazioso brings the sonata to a spirited close, demonstrating Mozart's command over both form and emotion.
These sonatas collectively showcase Mozart's ability to traverse diverse emotional landscapes, from exuberant joy to introspective depth, making them enduring pillars of classical piano repertoire.

Giuseppe Greco, born in 1990, is a pianist of remarkable prowess. With a degree earned at 15, he garnered top honors and distinctions under the tutelage of V. De Filpo. Recognized for his warm and full sound, Greco's technical brilliance, praised by Bruno Canino, transcends mere virtuosity, consistently enhancing the expressive depth and meaning of the music he interprets. A laureate of prestigious competitions, Greco continues to captivate audiences with his profound artistry and dedicated contributions to classical music.

The comprehensive recording of the complete sonatas was meticulously crafted by engineer Alessandro Simonetto, employing two pairs of Bruel & Kjaer microphones and Prism Sound pres/converters. This approach ensures a high-quality and faithful representation of the nuanced performances.
