In this, the last concert in the 2018/2019 Complete Works Live series, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s final piano-violin sonatas written between 1785 and 1788 are performed in the Sir Georg Solti Chamber Hall of the Liszt Academy. The E-flat major sonata (K. 481) dating from December 1785 so delighted music publisher Franz Anton Hoffmeister that he printed the work at his own expense. The No. 35 sonata (A major, K. 526) sits between Eine kleine Nachtmusik (K. 525) and Don Giovanni (K. 527) in the Ludwig von Köchel catalogue. In fact, this work is Mozart’s last mature style sonata for piano and violin because the next one, the F major composition (K. 547) completed on 10 July 1788, returns in its structure to the very earliest of sonatas by Mozart: the violinist merely shadows and accompanies the pianist. The programme includes an earlier sonata movement that Mozart never completed; this task was realized by his friend, Maximilian Stadler.

The concert is followed by CODA – which is an informal conversation with the performers.
