In Volume 7 of his internationally praised Mozart cycle, Kristian Bezuidenhout includes two works influenced by Wolfgang's 1778 stay in Paris: the grandly proportioned Sonata in A minor, K310 and the dazzling Variations in C on 'Lison dormait', K264.

SUNDAY TIMES ALBUM OF THE WEEK 'The South African player brings a new dimension to this music with his wonderful instrument, a modern copy of an 1805 Anton Walter (a favourite maker of Mozart s) by Paul McNulty. Its crisp, round middle range, bright, sparkling upper register and lower octave without a hint of buzz is one of the most beautiful period piano sounds I have heard on disc. It is Bezuidenhout s unfailing artistry, however, that brings this outstanding music to life as rarely before … Bezuidenhout delivers the turbulent A minor sonata (K310) of 1778 with elemental momentum and expressiveness, and dashes off the more insouciant D major of four years earlier with irresistible brio.' –Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times, 11th January 2015

'Bezuidenhout displays a consummate ease and naturalness at the instrument that seems second nature: he and the fortepiano are one … his interpretations continue to shed new light on these rich and varied works, even for listeners long familiar with them … if luck is on our side, the future may hold in store more of the robust, virtuosic and multi-faceted pleasures of Bezuidenhout s Mozart.' –Patrick Rucker, International Record Review, February 2015

***** 'enchanting … Bezuidenhout doesn t stint on the sonata s [K310] depth of feeling; he conveys he Allegro maestro s pounding intensity and the desolate Andante cantabile with total conviction. He s also adept at teasing out the delights to be found in less challenging works …. his sensitive touch and perfect timing confirm him as a true poet of the fortepiano.' –Graham Lock International Piano, May-June 2015
