  • Christian Blackshaw piano

A deeply passionate and sensitive performer, Christian Blackshaw is celebrated for the tremendous emotional depth, great understanding and incomparable musicality of his performances. He performed the complete Mozart piano sonatas at Wigmore Hall between 2012 and 2013, and this is the first of four concerts recorded for Wigmore Hall Live. Of these great works, justifiably considered to be at the pinnacle of the solo piano repertoire, Blackshaw says:

‘…to my mind, the sonatas resemble mini operas, even if conceived for and performed by a solo player… For me, they imbue the spirit with joy, laughter, sadness, contemplation, exhilaration.’
