In the third instalment of Christian Blackshaw’s complete Mozart Piano Sonatas recorded live at Wigmore Hall, we journey through 14 years of composition, exploring five contrasting works filled with emotional outpouring and harmonic invention.

From Sonata No.6 in D major, written in Munich during a musically fruitful yet financially difficult period, to Sonata No.14 in C minor, in which Mozart refuses to conform to the formality expected of the genre, this sublime recording demonstrates Christian Blackshaw’s captivating sensitivity and incomparable musicianship.

Blackshaw’s mindful yet spontaneous virtuosity, pinpointed sense of character and utterly alive music-making completely disarmed my scepticism. His light touch and unpredictable yet never contrived sounding accents in the outer movements of the C major Sonata are akin to a master actor who knows how to throw away a good line.” - Jed Distler, Gramophone: December 2013, Gramophone Editor's Choice (Vol.1)

Just as it was when welcoming the first volume, it is a joy to now listen to this second issue...enthusiastically recommended.” Colin Anderson, Classical Source: December 2014 (Vol.2)
