When he's playing music from the period in which composers were writing for the fortepiano, he prefers to play it on that instrument. Bezuidenhout plays a sonata in E-minor by CPE Bach, and then the "Piano Sonata Op. 10, No. 3" by Beethoven. He performs on a fortepiano made by Thomas and Barbara Wolf in 1992.
