Notes & Reviews:

Recently elected Newcomer of the Year by BBC Music magazine, 27-year-old Swiss pianist Francesco Piemontesi is one of the most sought-after artists of his generation. For his first international recital, Avanti Classic - in collaboration with Radio Svizzeria Italiana and the Borletti-Buitoni Trust - gave him carte blanche. Starting with Handel's Suite in B-flat major, Piemontesi builds a fascinating program reflecting the influence of Handel and Bach's music on Brahms' and Liszt's works. The narrative quality of his musical discourse, his deep understanding of counterpoint, and his quest for perfection will thrill music lovers around the globe.
