The latest CD from Evgeni Korioliov offers a new and, at the same time, old answer to the question of whether there is any point in bringing out discs today that have been recorded a hundred times before.

Mozart KV 330 etc. - many people are rolling their eyes at it, but only until they hear the first few notes. This music has never been heard like this before. The mobile phone falls into their lap, the computer mouse is still. The ears really want to give it their full attention. Some of the nagging stress of everyday life evaporates. Time drifts by. It makes you happy to watch this. This is actually what music should always do.

In the midst of all this pleasure, it's easy to forget that the artful way in which this is achieved isn't thanks to any old pianist. Evgeni Koroliov doesn't go looking for recognition. He calmly takes us by the hand and shows us the beautiful, hidden corners in Mozart's music.

In the third instalment of Christian Blackshaw’s complete Mozart Piano Sonatas recorded live at Wigmore Hall, we journey through 14 years of composition exploring five contrasting works filled with emotional outpouring and harmonic invention.

From Sonata No. 6 in D major, written in Munich during a musically fruitful yet financially difficult period, to Sonata No. 14 in C minor, in which Mozart refuses to conform to the formality expected of the genre, this sublime recording demonstrates Christian Blackshaw’s captivating sensitivity and incomparable musicianship.

“there is created in the listener a sense of unlimited trust in the pianist's interpretative authority - whether in his instinct for relating of tempo choice to shaping of phrases and grading of dynamics, or in his always acutely sensitive, never showy placing of detail...oone of today's most completely accomplished keyboard Mozartians.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2015 *****

“Blackshaw takes his time, looking not for hidden depths but the beauty in the surface of the music, the scales and arpeggios which ‘flow like oil’ as Mozart was proud to say of his own playing.” CD Review, 25th July 2015

“Angular or strident sounds are not a part of Christian Blackshaw's technique. Instead a horizontally even line and lucid touch sustain his vision of Mozart.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2015

“This is magnificent programming, magnificently delivered.” International Piano, September-October 2015

Eight of Mozart’s divinely inspired Piano Sonatas here receive performances of mercurial inspiration from consummate-musician cum virtuoso-wizard Marc-André Hamelin. His four Haydn albums have enthralled—this new Mozart will not disappoint. Two Rondos, a Fantasia, and a decidedly quirky Gigue complete a delight of a double album.

“Hamelin is never dull. He may not touch the heart through a perfect blend of control and insight, of pulse and flexibility, but his capacity for brilliance, for beauty of sound, and his flawless technical address can amount to pleasures in themselves.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2015

“His extreme refinement of phrase and dynamics, his endlessly fresh approach to detail and breadth of line can be taken for granted: the first item, the late D major Sonata No. 18 has rarely burst off the page so full of vivacity and muscular energy....It's in slow movements...that a quality of alien sophistication...tends to interpose itself.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2015 ****

Daria van den Bercken (piano)

Dutch/Russian pianist Daria van den Bercken had the classical music world listening when she launched her project ‘Handel At The Piano’ in 2012, playing keyboard works by George Frideric Handel and finding a new audience for this music through videos, concerts and alternative stages including the back of a truck and suspended from a crane.

‘Handel At The Piano’ was well received home and abroad, leading to the prestigious Amsterdam Prize in 2012, concerts worldwide and a release on Sony Classical. Daria developed the Talk & Play presentation, in which she invites audiences to listen to music and rethink structures. Daria presented Talk & Play at the renowned forum for groundbreaking ideas, TED – Ideas Worth Spreading.

Daria has played recitals in all the major halls of The Netherlands, and is also a regular guest at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. She won the Concertgebouw Vriendenkrans Prize 2005 and the Dutch Classical Talent Award 2006 and 2008. She has performed amongst others at the Virada Cultural Festival in São Paulo, the Delft Chamber Music Festival and the International Gergiev Festival in Rotterdam. Summer 2014 brought performances at the Henley and Petworth Festivals in the UK.

Embracing the world outside her own field of musical expertise continues to be the inspiration for Daria’s current project, ‘Keys to Mozart’. Daria has featured in a weekly series about classical music on prime time Dutch national television and is committed to actively reach out to younger audiences.

“I warmed to [den Bercken's] true oasis of calm in both the Adagios from K322 and K282, a pensiveness beyond her formidable focus...here is no Dresden china reduction and if, overall, admiration is qualified, it remains admiration.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2015

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

This is Grigory Sokolov’s “debut” recital on Deutsche Grammophon, an outstanding live recording from the Salzburg Festival 2008 of central repertoire: W.A. Mozart, F. Chopin & 6 encores.

At last - after 20 years - the maestro has agreed to allow his recordings to be released on CD - now as an exclusive DG artist. Regarded as one of the world’s leading pianists, and adored by his public in sold-out concerts, Grigory Sokolov is the real thing – an artist dedicated to his art, and nothing else.

“From the beginning of Mozart’s F major sonata, K. 280, the first of two included, the Sokolov spell is cast. The graceful, crisp articulation; the little hesitations, so carefully wrought: here is poetic and intimate playing of the highest order.” The Times, 16th January 2015 *****

“listening to Sokolov, you know unequivocally that you are in the presence of someone extraordinary, someone possessing special insights and a thoroughly individual way of articulating, clarifying and communing with music so that his interpretations seem to find its very heart.” The Telegraph, 24th January 2015 *****

“Some of the playing is breathtaking in its clarity, articulation and colour...The Mozart playing may seem old-fashioned, but it overflows with vitality, each movement conceived as a single, sweeping entity, while each of the Chopin Preludes manages to conjure up a complete expressive world in a miniature frame...It’s all to treasure.” The Guardian, 29th January 2015 *****

“For me, the Mozart sonatas exemplify the essence of Sokolov's playing: he can do things with a melody that are just amazing. The way he phrases Mozart's slow movements is a joy to hear: thoughtful and individual without being fussy, he makes those melodies sing in a way that is incomparable...This gift for lyricism is equally present in the Chopin...I simply cannot wait to hear more from this stunning artist.” James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, 19th January 2015

“he plays [the Mozart] with restraint, albeit micromanaging the music so that no phrase sounds the same twice...[in the Chopin] Sokolov ranges from introspective musing to his native Russian virtuosity.” Financial Times, 31st January 2015 ***

“It's an overused word, but he is inimitable. His Chopin Preludes, for example, have no time for the notion of a freely Romantic melodic line being kept in check by a Classical accompaniment...The Mozart is treasurable too, though - of course - you have to take it on its own terms.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2015

“Best of all are the six encores: exquisite Scriabin, wistful Chopin and a valedictory Bach chorale.” Classical Music, May 2015 ****

Andreas Staier (fortepiano)

Released for the first time in 2003 and 2005, this two-CD set combines two Mozart recordings in which Andreas Staier raises the questions of ornamentation and improvisation with a hefty dose of impishness in his interpretative options (as in ‘his' Rondo alla turca!).

Andreas Staier plays a fortepiano by Monika May, Marburg, 1986, after Anton Walter, Vienna, 1785.

“Staier's playing is illuminating.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2012 ****

“The variety of colour he gets from it is seemingly infinite, as is his expressive range...And (early-music devotees, please note and emulate, if you can) his ornamentations almost always sound spontaneous, a natural extension of the written notes.” Sunday Times, 22nd July 2012

Kristian Bezuidenhout (fortepiano: Paul McNulty, Divisov, Czech Republic, 2009; after Anton Walter & Sohn, Vienna, 1805. From the collection of Alexander Skeaping Unequal temperament, A=430)

In Volume 3 of his widely acclaimed traversal of Mozart’s music for solo keyboard, fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout plays a modern reproduction of an 1805 Viennese instrument by Anton Walter. The programme includes the well-loved Sonata in F major K. 332, alongside Mozart’s very last composition for piano, the Variations K. 613. Kristian Bezuidenhout was born in South Africa in 1979. He began his studies in Australia, completed them at the Eastman School of Music in the USA and now lives in London. He is a frequent guest artist with the Freiburger Barockorchester, the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées, the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century, Les Arts Florissants, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, The English Concert, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Collegium Vocale Gent, in many instances assuming the role of guest director.

“Bezuidenhout offers a performance that brings out all [the Fantasia's] intensity and passion...his refreshingly imaginative performances are marred only by a liking for exaggerated pauses between musical paragraphs. This disc comes strongly recommended.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2012 *****

“I have no doubt that this cycle is set to become a benchmark. There is nothing fussy or mannered about Bezuidenhout's Mozart, and the tempos provide no surprises. It is exceptionally beautifully crafted, with subtlety of nuance and tiny rhythmic inflections adding immense character, with the phrase structure neatly pointed...Listening to performances of this calibre leads one to re-evaluate the importance of these works.” International Record Review, February 2012

“the third volume of Bezuidenhout's Mozart keyboard msuic cycle attests to the young fortepianist's remarkable technical polish and command, as well as his cultivated though sometimes overly studied interpretations...the Andante cantabile's legato and detached articulations and subtle harmonic stresses are conveyed with admirable expressive economy.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2012

Mozart was certainly among the "domestic deities" of Viennese pianist Friedrich Gulda. He repeatedly played Mozart's piano music in his concerts and had it recorded. In so doing, this classically-trained musician, who had already played successfully in jazz bands at a young age, ignored the strict limits imposed by genres: he wanted to show audiences that there are no distinctions between musical styles whenever good music is played honestly and conscientiously. On June 27, 1982, Gulda again appeared at Munich's "Klaviersommer" festival. His partner was the jazz pianist Chick Corea, and the collaboration of both musicians is documented on the CD (and DVD) "The Meeting" - a standard in recording history. Until now, only the famous second half of this concert has been available and not the first, which Gulda performed on his own and was devoted primarily to Mozart. Gulda thus used Mozart's piano music as a kind of introduction to the world of jazz improvisation. The first part of this legendary concert, performed at the Deutsches Museum in the summer of 1982, took the soloist Gulda over 40 minutes to perform, even though he "only" played Mozart's Piano Sonata in C Major K 330. But he began and ended it with his own improvisations, which sound less than Mozartian, even though they do contain a broad and subtle range of different styles and effects, catchy melodies, and violent cascades of sound. Gulda proves to be a highly gifted interpreter of Mozart as well as a mischievous improviser on the piano – who also wants to entertain and can do so on a high level. - As a transition to the second part of the concert, he performs two of his own compositions, which can also be heard on this CD from BR-KLASSIK. It is a piece of good fortune that the Bayerischer Rundfunk has now made the first half of this concert event accessible to a wide audience too.The recording begins and ends with Mozart's rarely-heard Rondos for Piano and Orchestra in A Major KV 386 and D Major KV 382. Gulda played them on October 4, 1969 in the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz, accompanied by the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks under Leopold Hager. Gulda plays cheerfully without the slightest audible effort, combining Mozart with the finesse of a grandiose performer who is in fact laughing up his sleeve.
