Toronto Star: English pianist Christian Blackshaw has spent much of his life wrestling with Mozart
Ahead of his Mooredale Concerts performance, on March 17 at 3:15pm, pianist Christian Blackshaw was featured in the Toronto Star. Here’s a snippet:
“I feel [Mozart] to be a universally vocal composer rather than necessarily an instrumental or orchestral composer. All his music is written, I believe, with the human voice in mind. That is why he is especially difficult to perform at what is a percussive instrument, the piano. To make his lines sing is the ultimate challenge and that’s what I’ve wrestled with for a lot of my life.”Toronto Star, full article here.
