Music of Wolfgang Amadé Mozart
Heralded as “Mozart reincarnated” for his “rare rhetorical and poetic gifts” by De Telegraaf, superstar fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout returns to the BEMF concert stage in a evening of intimate music by Mozart alongside two pieces by C.P.E. Bach at New England Conservatory’s historic Jordan Hall. A favorite of BEMF audiences, Bezuidenhout brings his virtuosity and nuance to a brilliant program showcasing Mozart’s wide array of compositional gifts and headlined by Mozart’s Sonata in A major, K. 331, with its thrilling Ronda alla Turca finale. The artist will deliver a pre-concert talk at 7pm in Williams Hall at New England Conservatory.
