There are various complete recordings of Mozart's sonatas for piano and violin, most of them leaving off the juvenilia or relegating them to a separate volume (here they are omitted). This one by violinist Renaud Capuçon and keyboardist Kit Armstrong, playing modern instruments, holds the listener's interest unusually strongly. There are several reasons for this. One is the easy rapport between the two players, responding quickly to slight expressive moves or alterations in the tempo by one player or the other. They capture the rapidly developing role of the violin over the course of the set as it is transformed from an accompanimental instrument to a full partner in the dialogue. A second plus is the inclusion of two variation sets, the 12 Variations on "La bergère Celimène," K. 359, and the Six Variations on "Hélas, j'ai perdu mon amant," K. 360. These are not often heard, and quite opposite to what one might expect from their lightweight themes, they are substantial works. The role of the violin here, too, is key; although the piano is still the dominant partner, the violin was ready and available as a sound that would vary the texture, and Mozart exploited it to the hilt. Other attractions include the variety of Capuçon's playing within a fairly circumscribed context and an excellent feel for the dry language of the later sonatas, with their counterpoint and daringly irregular phrase shapes. A major entry in the Mozart discography, which landed on classical best-seller charts in the summer of 2023.
