Piano Sonata No. 15 (Mozart)
|Piano Sonata in F major|
|by W. A. Mozart|
|Movements||Three (Allegro, Andante, Rondo: Allegretto)|
A typical performance takes about 23 minutes.
The Rondo was originally a stand-alone piece composed by Mozart in 1786 (Rondo No. 2, K. 494 in the Köchel catalogue). In 1788, Mozart wrote the first two movements of K. 533 and incorporated a revised version of K. 494 as the finale, having lengthened it in order to provide a more substantial counterpart to the other two movements.
Edvard Grieg arranged this sonata for 2 pianos, by adding further accompaniment on the secondo part, whilst the primo part plays the original.  "In trying to 'impart to several of Mozart’s sonatas a tonal effect appealing to our modern ears', Grieg left a telling little document or two on just what those late nineteenth-century Norwegian ears expected.  A notable recording is that of Elisabeth Leonskaja accompanied by Sviatoslav Richter.
