This well recorded disc brings to the fore some unusual works by Mozart, realized and completed by other composers including Anthony Goldstone himself. The sprightly 'Magic Flute' overture comes alive in this spirited version for two pianos. What follows is a rarity in the shape of the Piano Sonata in B Flat Major, completed from fragments but it is a truly intriguing find and again it comes alive quite magically.

The Sonata in E Major was transcribed for two instruments by no less than Edvard Grieg himself and it receives a sparkling performance by Goldstone and Clemmow in another revealing find. The Adagio and Rondo originally for glass harmonica but transcribed for piano duo is also winningly done as is the concluding Sonata in D.

Divine Art deserve praise for venturing into this two piano repertoire which is reaping significant results for the label in this neglected field. Copious notes by Anthony Goldstone set the seal on a most stimulating release.
