If you know who Mozart is and you know who Artur Schnabel is, this five-disc set of Schnabel performing Mozart will be self-recommending. That is to say, if you know the sublime simplicity and supreme spirituality of Mozart's music and you know the graceful elegance and soulful profundity of Schnabel's playing, this disc will be self-recommending.
Artur Schnabel (17 April 1882 – 15 August 1951) was an Austrian-American classical pianist, composer and pedagogue. Schnabel was known for his intellectual seriousness as a musician, avoiding pure technical bravura. Among the 20th century's most respected and important pianists, his playing displayed marked vitality, profundity and spirituality in the Austro-German classics, particularly the works of Beethoven and Schubert.

More than Artur Schnabel’s other recorded collaborations with Pro Arte Quartet members, this 1934 Mozart G minor Quartet represents a true meeting of minds. Schnabel’s eloquent, flexible pianism and sterling musicianship are at their finest, while the pianist’s cohorts keep their swooping tendencies to a minimum. Of equal distinction is Schnabel’s ravishingly inflected 1948 Mozart B-flat Sonata K. 570. Seth Winner’s remasterings capture the air between the notes within a warmly equalized sonic spectrum.
