Edvard Grieg - (1843-1907) held Mozart in very high esteem and so between 1876/1879, Grieg arranged four of the 19 of Mozart's Piano Sonatas for two pianos. Of course, 'purists' have taken exception to Grieg's style in re-working of these four sonatas; nevertheless, Grieg felt that the repertoire would increase by these arrangements. Posterity has become the 'winner' in this musical dispute. There are several recordings now available including this excellent version by the Dena Piano Duo on the 2L 40 label.
The Program: 2 L 4- TT: 70:24 - Dena PIano Duo - Mozart in the Romantic Style - Sonata in C major, K545 - 'Sonate facile' -(1780): i. Allegro; ii. Andante; iii. Rondo: Allegretto; Sonata in F major, K533/K494 - (1788) and (1786): i. Allegro; ii. Andante molto; iii. Rondo-Allegretto; Sonata in G major, K283 - (1774) - i. Allegro; ii. Andante; iii. Presto; Sonate in C major, K475 - (1785)/K457 - (1784): i. Allegro molto; ii. Adagio molto; iii. Allegro vivace.
Here one finds the charm of Mozart with the romantic flavor and harmony of Grieg. The Dena Piano Duo play with color, panache and a flair for the dramatic. The sound of this recording is warm and adds to the overall enjoyment of this disc. It is also obvious that the 'duo' enjoys the music and this 'feeling' comes across throughout the entire recording. The performances are well-balanced and the pianos utilized are well regulated.

Even if you think one can't improve on perfection, it's fun to hear Grieg try and at least come up with enjoyable - and respectful - additions to some of Mozart's marvelous and familiar sonatas. The Grieg compositions function as an embrace of the Mozart pieces and together they become a new entity which sounds just as familiar as the original, but - with surprises. Thanks to spirited and masterful playing by two Norwegian pianists, the result is playful and fun.
