  • Christian Blackshaw piano

Mozart’s birthday is celebrated by a universally admired interpreter of the composer’s piano music. Of a recording of Mozart sonatas, the New York Times wrote: ‘This last release of Mr Blackshaw’s Mozart cycle, recorded live, is another welcome demonstration of his immaculate tone, delicate way with pacing and exquisite taste in articulation. In four sonatas taken from across the composer’s life, there is never a note of hurry or haste, and nothing that fails to enchant.’
