Menahem Pressler Plays Mozart

November 22, 2017, 9:00 am

In this second volume devoted to Mozart piano sonatas, Menahem Pressler infuses a serenity and tenderness rarely reached in this music. Pressler says, “I’ve always had a great love for Mozart…I’ve often played the sonatas, but I had never really taken them into my repertory: I had to learn everything again. When you relearn something, you mustn’t think it’s the same thing as when you learnt it before. You have to reinvent yourself.”
