Nearly 130 years separate the dark poetry of Mozart’s C minor Fantasia and Sonata and Janáček’s haunted keyboard miniatures but there’s an intimacy and a restrained emotional power that places them in the same tradition. Between them came Frederic Chopin, and if any pianist can bring out the deep kinship between these three very different composers, it’s Piotr Anderszewski, whose artistic ‘god’ Sviatoslav Richter put Chopin at the heart of the very first piano recital in Snape Maltings back in 1967.
