Variationen KV 265, Rondo KV 484, Sonate KV 533 ..

Works by W. A. Mozart on a period fortepiano by Anton Walter (around 1790) under the fingers of Paul Badura-Skoda, one of the pioneers of ‘historically informed performance practice’ – this constellation guarantees excitement and at the same time allows a glimpse of the sound worlds that must have presented themselves to the listeners of Mozart’s works at his time. The third and concluding part of the current Mozart series opens with the splendour of the Variations KV 265, in which Mozart plays with the simple melody of the well-known French children’s song ‘Ah vous dirai-je, Maman’ in twelve artful and sometimes dizzily virtuoso variations. In addition, Badura-Skoda interprets the Sonata in F major KV 533 with the Rondo KV 494 adapted subsequently into the third movement and the unusually complexly composed Rondos in D major KV 485 and A minor KV 511. A humorous conclusion is formed by the well-known Rondo ‘Alla Turca’, played on a fortepiano by Georg Hasska with an integrated Janissary’s pedal.

Paul Badura-Skoda
His teacher was Edwin Fischer; his discoverer Wilhelm Furtwängler. His composer friend, Frank Martin, composed a piano concerto for him and he shared a long professional friendship with the great Russian violinist David Oistrach.
Paul Badura-Skoda has long been a symbol of the cultivation of Viennese classical music. The holder of the prestigious Bösendorfer-Ring, he is a celebrated guest at major international music festivals. Earlier in his life Badura-Skoda collaborated with such renowned conductors as Hans Knappertsbusch, Herbert von Karajan, Georges Szell and Karl Böhm. He has also worked with Lorin Maazel, Zubin Mehta, Sir Charles Mackerras, Sir Georg Solti and John Eliot Gardiner, to name but a few. His recordings number well beyond the two hundred mark (LP's and CD's) including the complete cycles of the piano sonatas of Schubert, Mozart and Beethoven. He recorded these cycles on original instruments from his own collection.
Badura-Skoda performs with equal authority on both period and modern instruments. He was, truly, a pioneer in proposing the use of period pianos in performance, which has, today, become very popular in concert halls around the world. His profound knowledge of instruments from Bach's and Mozart's style up to the present has given him the capacity to extract from the modern instruments a quality of sound which never fails to surprise audiences and critics alike.
Badura-Skoda is not only known as a Mozart specialist; a Viennese by birth he has a genuine understanding of Schubert and never ceases to be in love with his music. He is also a great admirer of Johann Sebastian Bach and the author of a book entitled Interpreting Bach on the Keyboard (Oxford University Press). Badura- Skoda is also active as a conductor and composer.
