A pianist of “unique” and “captivating” qualities, Christian Blackshaw turns seventy during the 18/19 season, where he celebrates a three concert recital series at London’s Wigmore Hall.
The residency opens with a sold out chamber recital alongside Soloists of the Berliner Philharmoniker (Noah Bendix-Balgley, Máté Szücs, Bruno Delepelaire and Matthew McDonald) on Monday 24 September. They perform two Mozart Piano Quartets (K478 / K493) and Schubert's Trout Quintet.
To end the three concert residency, John Gilhooly invites Christian Blackshaw to give a gala recital on Mozart's own birth day, Sunday 27 January 2019. He has crafted a programme of Schubert, Franck, Schumann and of course, Mozart.
