Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

With this double set encompassing volumes five and six, fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout completes his multi-disc survey of Mozart's music for solo keyboard. The first four volumes in the series have been met with the highest critical acclaim from around the world. On this collection Bezuidenhout performs a mix of Piano Sonatas, Variations and other works on a fortepiano by Paul McNulty that was modeled after an instrument made by the great instrument maker Anton Walter.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Bezuidenhout can do both, and everything in between, so that the instrument has a variety of colors that I've rarely heard in fortepiano performances. Of course, he takes equal care with the (more occasional) variation sets (which include the ones on 'Salve tu, Domine' and 'Ah, vous dirai-je Maman'), the two early sonatas.
