On playing Mozart
Alfred Brendel

“Who was Mozart the composer? How did he strike his contemporaries? How literally does one need to take his notation? How do his few works in minor keys compare to the many in major, and his concertos to his sonatas?”
– A Mozart player gives himself advice.

Prior to Paul Lewis playing three Mozart concertos next week, I am delighted that Alfred has agreed to return this year to present this lecture. He will play some live illustrations on the piano and there will also be recorded extracts.

“If I belong to a tradition it is a tradition that makes the masterpiece tell the performer what he should do and not the performer telling the piece what it should be like, or the composer what he ought to have composed.”
Alfred Brendel
