In Volume 7 of his internationally praised Mozart cycle, Kristian Bezuidenhout includes two works influenced by Wolfgang's 1778 stay in Paris: the grandly proportioned Sonata in A minor, K310 and the dazzling Variations in C on 'Lison dormait', K264.

Kristian Bezuidenhout was born in South Africa in 1979. He studied at the Eastman School of Music, where he explored early keyboards, studying harpsichord with Arthur Haas, fortepiano with Malcolm Bilson, and continuo playing and performance practice with Paul O’Dette. He now lives in London.

Bezuidenhout is a frequent guest artist with all of the principal period ensembles and orchestras of Europe, often assuming the role of guest director, and he collaborates regularly with many of today’s most celebrated artists. He is a guest professor at the Schola Cantorum (Basel) and the Eastman School of Music (Rochester, New York) and he is Artistic Advisor for the Constellation Center, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

His recordings for harmonia mundi have garnered consistently brilliant reviews. Volume 1 of his ongoing cycle of Mozart’s keyboard works was awarded a Caecilia Prize and Gramophone 'Recommends'; Volume 2: Classic FM Magazine Editor’s Choice *****, IRR Outstanding and CD Review Disc of the Week; Volume 3 a BBC Music Magazine Instrumental Choice; and Volume 4 an IRR Outstanding.

"The finest living exponent of the intimate and infinitely versatile fortepiano." - The Herald, Scotland

Few players coax as much depth and detail from the fortepiano as this … [Bezuidenhout’s] enviably high standards maintained” - BBC Radio 3, review of Volume 4

Bezuidenhout is a prince of the fortepiano, making it sing in melodic phrases as no other practitioner of this intractable instrument has done in my experience.” - Hugh Canning, Sunday Times, 23 August 2009 (concert review)
