HellensMusic Festival brings you a piano Recital by Christian Blackshaw.
Christian Blackshaw’s complete Mozart sonata series at the Wigmore Hall and subsequent live recordings received worldwide acclaim.
Now he revisits two of those sonatas and performs one of Schumann’s greatest piano works, the Fantasie in C major.
Mozart: Sonata in B flat major, K. 333
Mozart: Sonata in A minor, K. 310
Schumann: Fantasie in C major, Op. 17
A deeply passionate and sensitive performer, Christian Blackshaw is celebrated for the incomparable musicianship of his performances. His playing combines tremendous emotional depth with great understanding and, in the words of one London critic, “sheer musicality and humanity”. Pianist magazine, reviewing his performance of Schubert’s great B Flat Sonata D.960 at the Queen Elizabeth Hall wrote that the work “has become the calling card of many a pianist wishing to declare themselves a musician’s musician and Blackshaw most certainly belongs to this category”.
