Notes & Reviews:

The Scotsman
Kristian Bezuidenhout plays Mozart on the fortepiano like no-one else... with all the sensitivity, expressivity, flair and stylistic integrity that has marked him out as a supreme master of the early keyboard... the tone is vibrant, the music thoroughly engaging, and the genius of Mozart is brilliantly and eloquently served.

On volume four of his widely acclaimed traversal of Mozart's music for solo keyboard, forte pianist Kristian Bezuidenhout performs on an instrument by Paul McNulty, modeled on a Viennese original by Anton Walter & Sohn (c.1805). The program includes Piano Sonatas in D major K.311 and G K.283 and the lovely Variations on 'Je suis Lindor' in E flat Major, K.354. As with the other volumes in this exceptional series, Bezuidenhout brings out colors and shadings in these works that are only possible when performed on a fortepiano.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2013
This is undoubtedly another impressive instalment in Bezuidenhuit's Mozart cycle, with a particularly fine account of the C major Prelude and Fugue K394, and an individual approach to the unconventional set of variations on Je suis Lindor, K354...All in all, a rewarding disc.

CD Review, 5th January 2013
Few players coax as much depth and detail from the fortepiano as this ... [Bezuidenhout's] enviably high standard's maintained.

Sunday Times, 13th January 2013
The sound he produces is a constant pleasure. There is nothing remotely prissy or limited about these brilliant, forceful performances, in which even the most apparently routine passagework is alive with expression and meaning...everything is fresh and vivid. Minor Mozart, but not when played like this.
