Product description

Product Description

A deeply passionate and sensitive performer, Christian Blackshaw [b1949] is justly celebrated for the incomparable musicality of his performances. He performed the complete Mozart piano sonatas at Wigmore Hall between 2012 and 2013, and this is the second of four volumes recorded for Wigmore Hall Live. Volume 1 was awarded Editor's Choice in both BBC Music and Gramophone Magazines. 'What glories then are contained in this cycle of works by Mozart? For me, they imbue the spirit with joy, laughter, sadness, contemplation, exhilaration: the challenge always is to give full life to their individual character. For the new listener, what wonderful surprises await. For the well-acquainted listener, how fortunate to return to them eager to be enchanted again.' Christian Blackshaw

Review

Christian Blackshaw gives beautifully shaped, sparkling, aching accounts of the sonatas --The Sunday Times

***** 'Christian Blackshaw doesn t give us pretty, bone-china Mozart, but a composer who can say serious things with a smile ... Recorded live, in concert if there are any edits from this single performance, they are inaudible the result is full of wit and wonder. The lucky few at Wigmore Hall make plenty of noise at the close of each sonata, and none during. Lucky us who can now join them.' --Peter Quantrill Sinfini Music, 4th November 2014

'Blackshaw s qualities include pristine, immaculate fingerwork, crystalline pianistic sonority and close attention to Mozart s dynamic markings ... he understands how to maintain and project the instrument s resonance ... The recorded acoustic is as clear as Blackshaw s playing deserves, and it can also be as full and rich as various sonorous contexts in the music require ... highly recommended' --Stephen Pruslin International Record Review, December 2014

Performance: **** Recording: ***** 'There s much to savour in the second volume of Christian Blackshaw s Mozart sonata cycle. He identifies completely with each work, drawing out the emotional characteristics of individual movements without unwarranted mannerism' --Erik Levi BBC Music Magazine, January 2015
