For some reason Jenő Jandó’s Mozartian collection has eluded us (it dates from 1991) and shows him as a natural Mozartian, if perhaps not an inspired one. He opens with impressive accounts of both the Fantasia and the C minor Sonata, which are related, finding their drama, and playing the central Andantino of the Fantasia very appealingly. Indeed, each of the Sonatas is firmly characterized, with thoughtful accounts of slow movements (the Andante cantabile of K. 333 and the Adagio of K. 280 are most sensitive without being sentimentalized) and in each case the finales are pleasingly light-hearted. The recording, made in the Budapest Unitarian Church, is faithful and this collection is satisfyingly unostentatious and direct.
