Lili Kraus

June 17, 2017

krausComposer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Works: Piano Sonatas
Performer: Lili Kraus

This was the first recording of Mozart’s piano sonatas I ever bought. On LP in 1974. Her interpretation is more straightforward than subsequent interpretations, like Mitsuko Uchida, which are lovely but can be a bit precious.

I also found graphics of the original cover art to add to the fond feeling of nostalgia in my library.  I love these album covers. At the time I was very impressed with this elegant, older lady who played some of the most beautiful music I’d ever heard (and for the first time). They don’t make ’em like that anymore. Those gowns!  Love it.

Ready to party like it’s 1974.
