Mr. Blackshaw gets reviews like this one from the Financial Times: 'But it was in No. 2 in A flat [Schubert’s Six Moments musicaux] that Blackshaw really revealed his sensitivity, finding a heartbreaking balance of tranquillity and regret. In the process he reminded us, with his spidersilk touch, just how many shades of quietness there are.'
Mr. Blackshaw's volume 4 of Mozart's Piano Sonatas was in The Best Classical Music Recordings of 2015 of the New York Times.
Mr. Blackshaw played Schubert's Piano Sonata in A minor D784 in a BBC lunchtime recital at the Wigmore Hall on the 21st of September 2013.
