SONATA IN D FOR TWO PIANOS, k.448/375a Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

This work, composed in 1781, was Mozart's only sonata for two pianos.  The eminent editor and historian Alfred Einstein, wrote, "... not a single shadow darkens its cheerful character.  The artistry of balance and dialogue between the two pianos, the delicacy of the figuration, the sense of texture in blending and exploiting the registers of the instrument are all of such supreme mastery that the seemingly 'superficial' and enthralling composition becomes one of the most profound and mature Mozart ever wrote."

Due to the file sizes and playing times, the MP3 secondo parts are sequenced separately for the three movements; each has a 1-measure lead-in.
