Abstract: Mozart’s piano sonatas suffer from prejudices, such as unnecessary difficulties, which lead pianists to set this music aside(Newman 1983). Mozart’s performance practice is often discussed (Badura-Skoda 1980; Levin 1992; Ogata 2012) and his instrumental music is the purpose of many comparative analysiswith his vocal music (Chantavoine 1948; Keefe 2001; Klorman, 2013). More precisely, Jones’ (1985) compares Mozart’s piano sonatas with his operas, but he does not propose new interpretation tools. Moreover, Irving suggests that Mozart’s piano sonata K.457 shows an operatic language (1997 : 100): «The material is of narrative, even dramatic kind. This is evident from the beginning, which presents a dialogue suggestive of two radically conflicting characters, [...]» (Irving 2010: 99).Thus, this work will be regarded as a “story” following Grabócz’s definition (2009), whic his, sounds’continuity taking the form of a plot . How could narratology give a new understanding of the writing strategies specific to the first movement of this sonata? How could it influence our influence our own piano playing? We will first compare writing strategies related to the opera’s characters appearing at the same time in some of Mozart’soperas(Idomeneo 1781, Die Entführung aus demSerail 1782, Le Nozze di Figaro 1786, Don Giovanni 1789, Die Zauberflöte 1791) and in this movement. These similarities will then be associated with Grabócz’s “figures dynamiques de la mise en intrigue”, which are “suspense” and “curiosity”. Finally, we will take a look at how these analyses influencedour interpretation of this work, and how our creative process impacted our researches.
