Born in South Africa, raised in Australia, educated in the US and now a resident of the UK, pianist Kristian Bezuidenhout is one of the world’s leading performers of Mozart. Since 2009, he has been recording the complete keyboard music of Mozart. As a performer, Mozart’s own performances as a pianist stunned Viennese concertgoers and paved the way for the likes of Beethoven and the Romantics to follow.

Alongside Richard Tognetti and an intimate ACO ensemble, Kristian takes on Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.13. Mozart himself wrote that this concerto could be “performed with full orchestra … or merely a quattro”, which is how it will be presented here.

Schumann’s String Quartet and Piano Quintet, both written in 1842 (his year of chamber music and not long after he married his beloved Clara), complete the program. Fresh, buoyant and inventive, these two magnificent works have been called “the most perfect of all the products of his genius.”
