LEEDS IPC 2012/ reviews




"Federico Colli, flamboyant in a scarlet cravat and cummerbund, aspired to high drama, launching the concerto with a thrilling majesty that never let up, even in the slow movement where his playing was remarkable in its lyrical beauty."

(Tim Ashley, The Guardian - September 16th, 2012)





"It was a winning performance. It was masterly."

(Benjamin Frith, pianist - BBC Radio 3)





"He's a superb pianist, totally amazing. He was fresh, he completely reinvented the Emperor."

(Kathryn Stott, pianist - BBC Radio 3)





"Beautiful pianism with wonderful tone; very sensitive to nuances, voicing and atmosphere; intelligent, energetic and never heavy-handed."

(Jessica Duchen, journalist of The Independent – London)



"Columbia Artists Music LLC is proud to announce representation of Federico Colli. The winner of the 2012 Leeds International Piano Competition is increasingly recognised for his intelligent, imaginative interpretations and impeccable technique- praised for his "crystalline brilliance and translucence that takes you to the heart of everything he plays" (Gramophone)."
