- What’s On
The celebrated English pianist Christian Blackshaw makes a welcome return to the Seed for a programme of Mozart, Schumann and Schubert. Awarded an MBE in 2019, his hugely acclaimed complete Mozart Piano Sonatas series were recorded for Wigmore Hall Live and released in four volumes.
Hannah Nepil, writing in the Financial Times, notes: ‘Some pianists love to flaunt their inner world. Others barely offer you a glimpse. Christian Blackshaw fits neither category. He allows you timidly into a place so private you almost hesitate at the threshold. Once inside you’ll find no sense of ego, only sincere, deeply felt playing that conveys more in one phrase than others find in a whole piece. Most importantly, it conveys a lifetime of experience.’
