Sholto has recently returned from Montréal, where he gave two concerts with the acclaimed German baritone Dietrich Henschel, as part of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal’s Schubert Festival. A rather lovely review of the second concert begins:

“His fingers seem to fly above the keyboard, he caresses the keys as one caresses a loved one. Sometimes so fast you can’t see the movement. Sholto Kynoch doesn’t just play the piano. It would be too limiting as a choice of verb and it is not a game for him. You can see it on his face. Joy, almost euphoria, as his colleague, the impressive baritone Dietrich Henschel, accompanies him, and intense concentration transform their faces from the first notes. It’s not just Schubert’s ‘L’incanto degli occhi’ that takes our breath away, but the virtuosity of the two artists on stage.” (Éklectik Média)
