The editor's decisions can be followed in the critical annotations as well as, perhaps even more importantly, in the direct comparison with the original manuscript. The edited musical text with fingerings, tried and tested page turns and a clear engraving offers a very convenient basis for practical use. The preface gives information about the work's origins and the autograph's eventful history.
(...) lt is deeply moving to see Mozart's immaculate caligraphy, and extremely inspiring to play the sonata from the facsimile score. (...) There are other controversies, including opposing views on dynamics, so the chance to study Mozart's handwriting first hand is extremely valuable, an opportunity that all performers of this dramatic work should not fail to miss. International Piano May June 2014
