Sonata K. 533 was written after Mozart had the opportunity to explore the works of J.S. Bach, and in its contrapuntal nature the piece looks back to German high baroque style. At the same time, the form foreshadows the keyboard style of Beethoven, with the stormy development and arpeggios of the opening Allegro. Much darker and more contemplative than slow movements of Mozart's middle period, the Andante leads the listener through chromatic harmonies to the heart of a maze where one momentarily forgets the key of the piece. In the Rondo, a simple alpine theme is heard between episodes of extravagant variation. At the end Mozart makes special use of the low register of the instrument, so that in quick succession the listener hears both the lowest and highest notes of the fortepiano.
