Kristian Bezuidenhout is known for bringing a new dimension to the interpretation of Mozart’s piano music. Trained as a modern pianist, Bezuidenhout fell in love with the fortepiano—forerunner of the contemporary piano that is most commonly heard today. For this solo performance, Bezuidenhout performed music (on a fortepiano made by R. J. Regier) by Mozart and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.
Bezuidenhout divides his time among concerto, recital, and chamber music engagements, appearing in music festivals in Barcelona, Boston, Bruges, Edinburgh, Innsbruck, St. Petersburg, Venice, Utrecht, Salzburg, Luzern, Schleswig-Holstein, Tanglewood, and Mostly Mozart; and at many of the world’s most important concert halls including the Berlin and Kölner Philharmonie, Suntory Hall, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Symphony Hall, Konzerthaus Vienna, Wigmore Hall, and Carnegie Hall. He was nominated as Gramophone Magazine’s Artist of the Year 2013.
