Geoffrey Tozer in Concert: Takapuna 1996 / Geoffrey Tozer, Auckland Sinfonietta
Between 1965 and 1996, Geoffrey Tozer performed
twenty-four of the twenty-seven Mozart concertos in public
performances in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, England, Singapore
and the United States of America.
Tozer regarded the music of Mozart, with that of Bach and Beethoven, as being at the core of his repertoire and, at least until the mid 1980s, was more associated with the music of Mozart that of any other composer. When the great Mozartian Ingrid Haebler visited Melbourne in February 1965, The Age reported that she considered his playing 'brilliant'. Five years later in London, Tozer made his debut playing Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 15 in the Royal Albert Hall to enormous acclaim. Later, when Tozer attended Haebler's concert at the Albert Hall, she complimented in her programme, writing 'I would have much rather been listening to you'.
