Pianist Mao Fujita enchants audiences with his musical warmth, lyrical soul and quick-firing brilliance.
Mao Fujita has been making waves in the classical music world since winning silver medal at the 2019 International Tchaikovsky Competition. The New York Times commented: ‘Waves of airy filigree, beautifully formed and finished, emerged in almost uninterrupted streams for his two-hour solo recital.’
Mao Fujita opens with three of Mozart’s short piano works, revealing the intimate and mysterious side of the composer. They build up to one of his most celebrated piano sonatas: the C minor K457. In this sonata, Mozart takes this supposedly modest instrument on a journey into almost operatic depths of passion.
After the interval, we enter a different universe: the high romanticism of Franz Liszt’s Sonata in B minor. Unfurling in one magnificent span, it’s a tone poem in all but name and finds the composer at the very peak of his powers.
