“I can hear in the music of both composers a similarity in their processes of giving physical form to their inspirations.

The cruel resistance of the blank page feels, in both cases, inexistent, ignored. And therein lies an important, precious connection between Mozart and Schumann: an unobstructed directness to their music, in which the purity of intention remains intact.” Piotr Anderszewski

BBC Music Magazine

June 2017


“His reflective, probing approach plumbs the depths of every piece”

Classical Music

July 2017


“Anderszewski has long paired the Fantasy K475 with the Sonata K457 and, with his almost titanic objectivity, the resulting arch-like span comes across ineffably as a single piece, sculpted without a trace of indulgence or unnecessary gesture and hugely impressive”

Gramophone Magazine

July 2017

“Convincing, companionable, persuasive, hugely intelligent, unpredictable, totally without cliché. I know I shall always want to listen to Anderszewski”
