A composer and conductor, Mustonen has brought a tenacious spirit of discovery and originality to his interpretations of the piano works of the classical masters. Of his Goldberg Variations, The Guardian writes, "Mustonen's approach is spontaneous, energetic, and at times infectious in its enthusiasm. He realized the full dynamic and dramatic potential of a concert grand."
