Notes & Reviews:
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".
Wigmore Hall was sold out for a Schubert recital by a concert pianist whose only solo recordings consist of three volumes of the Mozart piano sonatas. That would be understandable if he were 23 years old and the next big thing. But he's 65. Though he may indeed be the next big thing! Christian Blackshaw started big, faded into obscurity, then burst back at around the time he qualified for AARP. He has the features of a matinee idol and the swept-back silver hairstyle that Beethoven would have sported. His previous Mozart Recordings for the Wigmore hall Live label have all been Editor's Choices in both BBC Music Magazine and gramophone as well.
