Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto [has been] played with formidable delicacy by Federico Colli [with] limpid tone and calligraphic phrasing. It’s a Valentino kiss, this work. […] Cool, a little sad, unhurried, elegant. But Federico Colli takes care to seduce before sweeping the listener off his or her feet.” (Anna Picard, The Times – January 18th, 2015)
