Combine a period piano, a pianist with technical and imaginative skills at the highest levels, and a love and understanding of Mozart's music that is nearly unparalleled among pianists. What you get is Kristian Bezuidenhout's impressive and delightful multi-volume collection of Mozart's Keyboard Music (Harmonia Mundi), of which Volume Four has just been released here in the States.
This volume has plenty of music to love. The Piano Sonata in G Major K. 283, the 12 Variations on "Je suis Lindor" in E-flat, the Piano Sonata in D Major, K. 311, among others.
The music is given its full due. Kristian plays the works with great enthusiasm and brio. Volume Four will satisfy the Mozart lover lurking within most of us. The performances are impeccable.
