Scarlatti Recording for NAXOS

MOZART, W.A.: Fugues, Rondos and Fantasias (Sang Woo Kang)

8.573114

8.573114Sang Woo Kang has released a solo recording titled of Mozart’s fugues, rondos, and fantasias on the NAXOS Label (8.573114).

Mozart married Constanze Weber in 1782, and it is thanks to her diligent curation of ‘these marvellous relics’ that we have these rarely heard fragments including fugues which reveal the influence of Bach and demonstrate Mozart’s agility with sophisticated contrapuntal techniques. The more substantial Rondos have gained popularity with their memorable themes and musical depth, while forays into Baroque style can be heard in the unfinished Suite. These, the improvisational Fantasias and a mocking parody of a Funeral March all highlight neglected facets of Mozart’s oeuvre.

The recording can be purchased here (iTunes) and here (Amazon).
