Francesco launches his Mozart cycle at Wigmore Hall on 25 January 2016, beginning his survey of Mozart’s Piano sonatas and solo keyboard works with the Fantasia in D minor. The programme also pairs the Rondo in A minor of 1787, audacious and forward-looking in its harmonies, with the equally unconventional Piano Sonata in A K331, famed for its iconoclastic Minuet and ‘Turkish’ Rondo.

The cycle continues with recitals at the Concertgebouw in March and July in addition to a further recital at Wigmore Hall, also in July.
