I've always believed Mozart's genius is in his piano music and the violin sonatas are not my favorite but I wanted to upload this to give everyone a taste of the best recordings available of these sonatas. It is my opinion that the best Mozart Sonatas ever recorded were made by Grumiaux / Haskill, after doing a bit of research I found out that the following Mozart sonatas recorded by Grumiaux/Haskill are in print:

K 301, 304, 376, 378, 454

but not

K 526

My favorite is 454 and I was going to upload that, but it is in print so I wont upload it and since the 526 with Haskill is out of print i decided it is ok to upload. Note that someone put up a video of Grumiaux playing this with Kelin (to which this is a video response) but not with Haskill.

I encourage everyone to get all the recordings of Grumiaux with Haskill and anything Grumiaux recorded of Mozart for that matter, no one ever did better with Mozart and I doubt anyone ever will. This is of course my opinion which is of yours subjective and not fact, it is the responsibility of every musician (an any appreciator of fine music) to decide what a performance means to them and how a piece of music should be played whether its them playing or someone else, sometimes listening to someone else play something can change your perception of how the should can or should be shaped. I would also like to mention there is a dvd of the lovely Anne Sophie Mutter playing all Mozart concertos, sonatas and trios on dvd that is worth investigating, i suspect it was recorded for the 300th anniversary of Mozart's birth if Im not mistaken (anyone care to confirm this?)

I have uploaded rare out of print and unreleased recordings that are difficult to find, I hope you like them.

Since they are so difficult to find no one should mind me uploading them, if you have issues with me uploading them please send me a message and I will remove them.
