A deeply passionate and sensitive performer, Christian Blackshaw is celebrated for the incomparable musicianship of his performances. His playing combines tremendous emotional depth with great understanding and, in the words of one London critic, "sheer musicality and humanity".
His hugely acclaimed Wigmore Hall complete Mozart sonata series concluded in early 2013 and subsequently Wigmore Hall Live have issued all four volumes. Critics have been unanimous in their praise, describing these “landmark” recordings as "captivating", "magical" and "masterful". Volume 4 was named as one of the Best Classical Recordings of 2015 in The New York Times.
At St John's Blackshaw will play:
Schubert: Moments Musicaux, D780
Mozart: Piano Sonata in A minor, K310
Schubert: Piano Sonata in B flat major, D960
Doors open 7.30pm, concert begins at 8pm
Kettle’s Yard is the University of Cambridge’s modern and contemporary art gallery. Music has always been played at Kettle’s Yard. There are two pianos in the House at Kettle’s Yard and when it was a home to Jim and Helen Ede they used to hold small concerts. Now we continue to present concerts. While Kettle’s Yard is closed for our major building project we are holding concerts in the Old Divinity School at St John’s College in Cambridge.
