Francesco Piemontesi piano
The Swiss pianist captures light and shade exquisitely, a quality which will serve him exceptionally well in his performances of Schubert and Liszt
Schubert Sonata No. 17 D. 850
Liszt Saint François d’Assise prêchant aux oiseaux
Sonata in B minor
Swiss-born Francesco Piemontesi is establishing his credentials among thirty-something pianists for the restraint, refinement and sophistication of his performances from the major Classical and Romantic repertoire. He is ready to take over the reins from his illustrious predecessors Arturo Benedetti-Michelangeli and Maurizio Pollini in these genres. With Schubert and Liszt, he is taking us into the very heart of repertoire in which he has achieved a unique mastery.
