A student of Alfred Brendel’s, Francesco Piemontesi has garnered a reputation across the world for his fleet-fingered technique and poetic expression. In this wide-ranging recital program, he shapeshifts from the refined vigor of Bach’s Italian Concerto to Debussy’s painterly tableaux, finally arriving at the immersive virtuosity of Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Sonata.

The Program

“Sparkled with dashing insouciance, only to contrast that with playing of lyrical beauty.”
– Financial Times (U.K.)
