KV 331: Piano Sonata #11 in A.

The third movement of said sonata (yeah, Mozart, KV is the Kochel catalog) is played here by a guitarist. Interesting. There is quite a comment war going on about the quality of the performance. Still, you get the idea and know the piece.

However, I recently obtained a recording of Alfred Brendel playing the KV 331 (and others) on the instrument the pieces were composed for: the piano. I have not scoured the Brendel site for any sort of recording but YouTube comes through again and someone has posted a film of the whole KV 331. I highly recommend the Brendel version, I have been listening to this piece incessantly now since I bought the CD.
