HIGHLIGHTS/ Revier Passagen, Dortmund
12.06.2013 by Werner Haussner
With Federico Colli, winner in 2012 of the renowned Leeds Piano Competition, Italy has gained, after a long time, a young pianist who has every chance of reconnecting with the great tradition of Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli and Maurizio Pollini.
His sense for the strong contrasts, for a brilliant and resolute sound aims to the passion. His dizzying coherence in the interpretation and his focus on the changing lights are not exhausted in a virtuosic performance, but they serve to the structural explanation of the work.
