Interpreting Mozart. The performace of His Piano Pieces and Other Compositions. Second edition.

Now, in a completely updated and revised edition, this book includes the last half century of scholarship on Mozart's music, addressing the elements of performance and problems that may occur in performing Mozart's works on modern instruments. This second edition includes an audio CD with examples of the works discussed.
