"Federico Colli, with playing that was dry and pellucid, in a tremendous account of K488 that was super-articulate, where the immaculate pianist’s right foot seemed to eschew the use of the sustaining pedal as an expressive tool. His playing was consistently detached, but never mechanical. He was phenomenal, with his clarity of playing underlined by the cut-down band."

City Guide to Edinburgh, Reviews Classical: in the Usher Hall, a really enjoyable feast
"Federico Colli, smartly suited as any young Italian from Brescia would want to be, so apparently effortlessly showed us how Mozart should be played. His Bach Chorale encore won him every heart in the concert hall."
