Mozart: Solo Keyboard Works
Keiko Shichijo

$ 14.99

Fortepianist Keiko Shichijo presents a radically fresh view of Mozart's keyboard music.  Neal Peres Da Costa, Professor of Historical Performance at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music writes: "Keiko Shichijo has been inspired to reimagine a Mozart that is highly expressive, rhetorical, and even occasionally volatile." Shichijo's brilliant Mozart was recorded on an original Frère et Soeur Stein d’Augsbourg à Vienne dated 1802. Mr. Da Costa calls the instrument "absolutely ravishing in sound, with a clarity, crispness, and resonance that is ideally suited to Mozart’s piano writing."


"Keiko Shichijo is a true poet of the ivories. This rivals some of the best Mozart solo piano performances ever, to my mind. You owe it to yourself to hear it." - Gapplegate

"A superb interpretation of some of Mozart's most compelling works at keyboard." - International Piano

"It’s an intensely personal reading of these five works but, coupled with the irresistible sounds she draws from the instrument, it’s one that grabs the attention and presents an enticing alternative view of them." — Gramophone
