I like Beethoven's Waldstein and Appassionata, Mozart's F Major and C Major Sonatas (K.332 & 330), and Haydn's C Major Sonata Hob. 50.

Sorry, I don't wish to start a new topic but........

I want to get some recordings of Mozart Sonatas but I couldn't find Brendel in my local store.....Question is, is Mitsuko Uchida just as good? Between the two, who is better?

I think Brendel is better ...yet I still don't like his Haydn sonata (guess Haydn is just not my thing..)same thing with Argerich's Mozart

and pianoangle, the late Beethoven(109, 110,111) are awesome... I might actually get jealous if you play any of them

if these are for auditions, I'd stay away from the more "cliche" pieces. Haydn Sonatas, especially his last 6 (good luck finding the sheet music) are very pretty. Sonata no.58 hob.48 in Cmajor is very nice. playing rare pieces is good, serves as a break from the typical recital/audition repitoire, but then again if it's too "boring" then the judges might pass it over as insignificant and pay more attention to the pieces they are familiar with.

But my two cents: Haydn's last sonatas No.56, No.58, No. 59, No.60, No.61, or No.62 all very nice.

I don't like Haydn, I don't like Mozart. Of Beethoven op 22 was my favourite, but the second movement is not great imo.
