Mozart: Sonata nº 8 in A minor

Ronald Brautigam, fortepiano

“Allegro maestoso” from the Sonata nº 8 in A minor KV 310 by W. A. Mozart

The dramatic tone of this sonata (composed in Paris in 1778) is evident right from the outset. The appoggiaturas of the main theme, combined with the dissonances in the accompaniment, give this movement somewhat tragic overtones, which subsequently turn into an ironic free-and-easy manner.
