W.A.Mozart, Sonata in F Major, KV 280, Wim Winters, clavichord.
This Mozart sonata in F Major, KV 280, and most of all the middle section of it, is an astonishing early example of what we later will be calling the ‘great romantic feelings’, as Beethoven will be emerge the world in. Cultivation of pure nature, loneliness, … no, the thumbnail is made on purpose, it reflects a bit of that feel. Certainly of that middle section, not played as a ‘in-between little piece of music’, but true to the notation and 18th c tradition, as a true adagio, not stick ones 21st century fear for silence to it, opens a totally new world of emotional expression. Also for me, revisiting this work, it is leaving me with an impression I for sure will think off even in my last days. Seriously, the piece blew me away. Hope you feel it too !
