Description: Eleven piano sonatas by the“Portuguese Mozart”, showing a diverse range of influences from Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven but containing many original features, not least incendiary scalar passages and dramatic hand crossings. Full of lyricism, counterpoint and often exceptional virtuosity, these features reach a peak in the monumental Op. 20. 2 CDs. Luísa Tender (piano).
