This 25-year-old Russian pianist – who, it emerges, is also a fine poet and author – is a crisp, expressive and convincing advocate for Mozart’s juvenilia. She performs these 49 tiny pieces with great affection: some are true slivers of Mozart in embryo, as it were, fragments of distilled classicism strongly influenced by JC Bach. Jessica Duchen
