Pianist Konstanze Eickhorst is presenting a melancholy version of Mozart on her new GENUIN CD. Fantasias, sonatas and a rondo: all works in a minor key whose despondency, anger and defiance by no means reflect the image of an perpetually light-hearted Olympian prodigy. And yet the soloist’s at once sensitive and energetic performance lets rays of the sun shine through rainy mists and a smile is seen amidst the tears. From the first note in C minor (Fantasia KV 475) to the final note of the A minor (Rondo KV 511) works, this disc invites listeners on a journey through the profound depths of feeling of this 18th century repertoire.

"Derrière le titre Mozart en mineur se cache, au fil d’un programme de piano seul ingénieux plus de sens qu’il n’y paraît au premier abord, et l’occasion d’une réflexion sur le génie propre de Mozart dans la révélation d’une intimité qui aurait dû, selon les codes de la bienséance, échapper à toute exposition publique."
