Christian Blackshaw: Mozart Series

Iain Burnside talks to Christian Blackshaw about his Mozart Series at Wigmore Hall, which concluded in early 2013, as well as his musical career and recent achievements.

Volume 1 of his complete survey of Mozart’s piano sonatas has been released on Wigmore Hall Live

Reviewers were unanimous in their praise for the performer’s full account of these works at St George’s Bristol, a series now spoken of in legendary terms. Blackshaw’s pianism, shaped by studies with Sir Clifford Curzon and at the Leningrad Conservatory, has rightly been hailed for its ‘sheer musicality and humanity’.

Mozart’s solo keyboard sonatas contain everything necessary to explore those characteristics and transport listeners to a world of intense contemplation.
