Notes & Reviews:

International Record Review
This survey looks likely to set a new benchmark.

New York Times
Bezuidenhout has a lively interpretive imagination, razor-sharp technique and fresh ideas about how to use the coloration of the fortepiano...to bring the music to life. If you doubt that the fortepiano can sing, listen to his plaintive readings of the Adagios from the Sonatas in F (K. 533/494) and B flat (K. 570)

Gramophone Magazine
Bezuidenhout offers a personal distillation that is impressively absorbing. So indeed are the timbre and sonority of the instrument...But, perhaps unexpectedly, a singing line is to the fore too because Bezuidenhout is consummately artistic...These interpretations - excellent to outstanding - are interpretations of today.

Sunday Times
He plays a copy of a Walter fortepiano, such as Mozart owned...it fits the music like a glove...Bezuidenhout's decorations sound - as is by no means always the case - supremely natural, and in the brilliant Gluck variations, it's as if we were eavesdropping on the composer himself improvising.

remarkable
IIt sometimes seems that where Mozart's piano sonatas are concerned, the composer gets too much credit. These works surely contain moments of infectious energy and subtle introspection, but generally they convey little more than a sense of charm, innocent pleasures innocently taken.
