“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

“His reflective, probing approach plumbs the depths of every piece” BBC Music Magazine, June 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” Classical Music, July 2017 *****

“Convincing, companionable, persuasive, hugely intelligent, unpredictable, totally without cliché. I know I shall always want to listen to Anderszewski” Gramophone Magazine, July 2017

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

Kristian Bezuidenhout (fortepiano)

Paul McNulty, Divisov, Czech Republic, 2008; after Anton Walter & Sohn, Vienna, c. 1802; unequal temperament - A = 430

Fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout continues his multi-disc survey of Mozart’s music for solo keyboard. Volume 2 features an instrument by Paul McNulty, modelled on a Viennese original by Anton Walter & Sohn (c.1802).

Kristian Bezuidenhout was born in South Africa in 1979. He first gained international recognition at the age of 21 after winning the prestigious first prize as well as the audience prize in the Bruges Fortepiano Competition after studying harpsichord with Arthur Haas, fortepiano with Malcolm Bilson and continuo playing and performance practice with Paul O’Dette. During this time he gained experience as a continuo player in Baroque opera productions in the USA and Europe. He is a frequent guest artist with the Freiburger Barockorchester, the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées, Les Arts Florissants, Concerto Köln and Collegium Vocale Gent, in many instances assuming the role of guest director. He has performed with celebrated artists including Philippe Herreweghe, Christopher Hogwood, Daniel Hope and Viktoria Mullova, and he regularly gives Lied recitals with, among others, Carolyn Sampson, Mark Padmore and Jan Kobow.

“Bezuidenhout is a prince of the fortepiano, making it sing in melodic phrases as no other practitioner of this intractable instrument has done in my experience.” The Times

“This is Mozart rethought, unsanitised and maybe unsettling for some. But as Bezuidenhout implies, we have to move on.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2011

“Bezuidenhout promises great things, and this instalment is superb. The keyboard is perfectly scaled to the music: Bezuidenhout can give the C minor sonata (K457) full force and weight without ever sounding overblown, while the exquisite A minor rondo and B minor adagio have a gentle, unforced eloquence.” The Observer, 16th January 2011

“Any inbuilt resistance to hearing Mozart on a fortepiano rather than a concert grand quickly evaporates as the ear begins to relish the piquant colours and subtle nuances that Bezuidenhout produces...The best of it (K511, 540 and 457) sounds revolutionary while the rest cannot fail to charm.” Classic FM Magazine, February 2011 *****

“Bezuidenhout steers a wonderful, measured course through both works [Rondo and Adagio], but allows himself a bit of freedom in the two sonatas...Both are perfectly proportioned accounts, with every rhythm neatly sprung, and inflected with a splendid range of keyboard touch and colour.” The Guardian, 20th January 2011 ****

“There is nothing to fault in the playing, with Bezuidenhout displaying immaculate control of the refinements of tone of a fabulous fortepiano...This is Mozart playing of such intimacy and tenderness, on an instrument able to respond with similar subtlety and nuance” International Record Review, January 2011

“Throughout, Bezuidenhout transcends the apparent limitations of his instrument — a modern copy of a Walter fortepiano — with a remarkable range of colour.” Sunday Times, 30th January 2011 ****

“deeply-felt performances of some of the very greatest among the solo keyboard works...these performances leave a strong impression. Among the highlights is Bezuidenhout's expressive account of the tragic A minor Rondo K511. Elsewhere, Bezuidenhout is unfailingly imaginative with his own ornamentation. The reproduction Anton Walter pianos he uses are warm and sonorous.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2011 ****

“There have been a few recordings on historical instruments made in recent decades, but Bezuidenhout rivals them all for the breadth of understanding he brings to the music, and his astonishing inflections of colour. He is able to make the fortepiano really sing – such an important aspect of Mozart’s music...this is shaping up to be a truly great cycle that does Mozart’s solo piano music the fullest justice.” bbc.co.uk, 12th April 2011

William Youn (piano)

At the beginning of his Mozart cycle with Oehms Classics and the Bavarian Broadcasting Company, William Youn stated in an interview: 'I would like to play a Mozart that can be sensed and felt. After all, many say that Mozart always sounds the same, but I don’t feel that way. I would like to show how differentiated and exciting Mozart can describe the most varied emotions and colours of people –through music'. When one has heard all 5 CDs, there is actually nothing more to add to that. His plan has been wonderfully realised.

“Here we have playing that is absolutely at the service of the composer yet also full of personality...Youn’s reading of the Fantasy is one of the highlights here: he is fully alive to the importance of the silences within it, while also letting the music build and billow without ever lapsing into melodrama...This is beguiling Mozart-playing – innate, intelligent, honest and fiercely musical.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2017
