Kristian Bezuidenhout

I keep on mentioning him and praising his recordings on fortepiano of concertos by Mendelssohn and Mozart, so it’s good to be able to feature a video of the man himself taking about his instrument and his love of Mozart. Kristian is one of the ten musicians on the final list for Gramophone Artist of the Year. I’ll be happy if he gets the award.

By the way, I’d really appreciate it if someone could tell me the correct pronunciation of Kristian’s name. He introduces himself on the video, but does so too quickly for me to catch it.
