Pianist Peter Donohoe discusses Mozart, Richter and the Soviet Union
An extended interview with pianist Peter Donohoe features in episode number twenty nine of the Thoroughly Good Classical Music Podcast.
Peter and I sat down ostensibly to discuss his new release on the SOMM label - a collection of Mozart Piano Sonatas plus the Fantasia in D minor.
As with anything unplanned and unscripted our conversation took in a great many other subjects too, including interpretation, Richter, and Soviet Russia.
Musical excerpts included in this 1 hour episode recorded in January 2019 are drawn from the first volume released earlier this year.
