Notes & Reviews:

"An Italian pianist, born in 1968, Libetta makes a formidable impression in this recording of a concert given in Miami, January 7, 2000. He is a super-virtuoso who does not dowse you with pails-full of notes. no technical showmanship here; with his kind of technique Libetta does not need to try to make an impression. He takes his wonderful fingers for granted, and the listener is swept along... I have no hesitation calling him an important pianist." -Schonberg, ARG
