“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

Youri Egorov (piano)

Russian born pianist Youri Egorov first came to international prominence as the clear favorite among the 1977 Van Cliburn Competition’s semifinalists. Egorov’s playing has drawn parallels with that of pianist Dinu Lipatti - both men gave their final concert performances at the age of 33, each knowing at the time that he was afflicted with a fatal illness and had but months to live. 1978 was the year in which Egorov’s career took flight.

After his January début in New York the critics compared him to Horowitz, Richter and Rachmaninov.

“[The Schumann] is filled with ideas and fairly bursts with rhythmic vitality. The Chopin Op. 25 Etudes contain some very exciting and beautiful piano-playing” Gramophone Magazine, July 2016

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

Fortepiano phenomenon Kristian Bezuidenhout begins his multi-volume traversal of Mozart’s music for solo keyboard.

Volume 1 features an instrument by Derek Adlam modeled on an original by Gabriel Anton Walter of the type Mozart owned in Vienna. Kristian Bezuidenhout studied with Rebecca Penneys, Malcolm Bilson and Paul O’Dette. 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 (2001), a double honour, this being only the third time the former prize has been awarded in the history of the competition. Bezuidenhout is a frequent guest artist with the world’s leading ensembles and he now has a standing duo with the baroque violinist Petra Müllejans, artistic director of the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra; their first CD, a disc of Mozart Violin Sonatas, was released on harmonia mundi USA in the Spring of 2009. Highlights of past seasons have included a complete cycle of the late Mozart Piano Concertos and the Beethoven Piano Concertos (Amsterdam Concertgebouw) with the Orchestra of the 18th Century under Frans Bruggen. Plans for the future include concerts with the Orchestre des Champs Elysées under Philippe Herreweghe; a Mendelssohn project with the Freiburger Baroque Orchestra and Gottfried von der Goltz; a tour with Les Arts Florissants; trio concerts with Viktoria Mullova & Pieter Wispelwey and more recordings for harmonia mundi.

“He plays a copy of a Walter fortepiano, such as Mozart owned...it fits the music like a glove...Bezuidenhout’s decorations sound — as is by no means always the case — supremely natural, and in the brilliant Gluck variations, it’s as if we were eavesdropping on the composer himself improvising.” Sunday Times, 11th April 2010 ****

“Bezuidenhout offers a personal distillation that is impressively absorbing. So indeed are the timbre and sonority of the instrument...But, perhaps unexpectedly, a singing line is to the fore too because Bezuidenhout is consummately artistic...These interpretations - excellent to outstanding - are interpretations of today.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2010

“This survey looks likely to set a new benchmark.” International Record Review, April 2010

“Bezuidenhout has a lively interpretive imagination, razor-sharp technique and fresh ideas about how to use the coloration of the fortepiano...to bring the music to life. If you doubt that the fortepiano can sing, listen to his plaintive readings of the Adagios from the Sonatas in F (K. 533/494) and B flat (K. 570)” New York Times, 26th November 2010

Fantasia in C minor, K396


We are delighted to present an eagerly awaited recital disc from Stephen Hough. This fascinating programme begins with some of Mozart’s most audacious and forward-looking piano works. Mozart’s Fantasia in C minor K475 is a wonderfully unfettered and uninhibited work, suffused with high drama and a sense of constantly shifting moods. The Piano Sonata in B flat major K333 is a similarly ground-breaking piece, developing in scale and drama from its lyrical, gentle opening.

The second part of the disc features Mozart as seen by others, from the homage of a near-contemporary right up to the modern day, with Hough’s own irresistibly quirky Mozart imaginings, and from elegant miniatures to Liszt/Busoni’s virtuosic Figaro Fantasy. This disc is full of surprises, and demonstrates the full range of Hough’s extraordinary artistry.

“Here’s another winning, imaginatively conceived disc from Britain’s finest pianist … It is unexpected and delightful programme-building. Prized for his pianism, Hough is also a superb Mozartian. He lends these Fantasias an almost Beethovenian weight and depth of expression … Hough’s playing is dazzling throughout” Sunday Times

“There are all too few pianists with the equivalent of Hough’s three Michelin stars … Opening with two of Mozart’s solo masterpieces, the ear is welcomed into an intimate, pellucid sound world with a sophistcated grading of dynamics … [Liszt-Busoni Fantasy on Non piu andrai] provides a hair-raising bravura display that deserves to be heard more often. At least, when played like this” Gramophone Magazine

“A bold and dramatic account of Mozart's K475C minor Fantasia opens this memorable and imaginatively devised recital.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2008 *****

“Opening with two of Mozart's solo masterpieces, the ear is welcomed into an intimate, pellucid sound world with a sophisticated grading of dynamics. Hough plays with what used to be called 'a quiet hand', particularly effective in the first movement of the B flat major Sonata in which he finds an unexpected melancholy amid the music's basically optimistic character.
After the dramatic second (earlier) C minor Fantasia completed by Stadler, and Cramer's attractive Etude, Op 103 No 6, we seem to be listening to a different pianist who now relishes the delicate, perfumed harmonies of Friedman's Menuetto transcription. In the same vein, but imbued with witty Poulencian devices, Hough the pianist-composer reminds us how important charm is to the pianist's arsenal. Again, the pianist changes. This time we hear a barn-storming virtuoso in the Liszt-Busoni Fantasy on 'Non più andrai' and 'Voi che sapete' from The Marriageof Figaro. More fragmentary than the better- known Don Giovanni Fantasy and not quite as effective, it nevertheless provides a hair-raising bravura display that deserves to be heard more often. At least, when played like this.”
