Birmingham Post
5 Stars
'Francesco Piemontesi was the soloist, his neat, relaxed fingers drawing a warm, pearly tone, his decoration flowing ripplingly, his added ornaments perfectly fitting, his nuanced phrasing as natural as singing. He conjured a whole range of moods from these deceptively simple textures, and his collaboration with Mirga's orchestra was as empathetic as in chamber-music.'


Dallas News
'Pianist Francesco Piemontesi supplied singing tone and lovely shape in Mozart's B-flat major Piano Concerto (No. 27, K. 595).'
