I have heard Federico Colli on many occasions during the Duszniki Zdrój Festival and all have been outstanding examples of penetrating and brilliant musicianship.
I had written in 2013: “A great evening given to us by a great artist with tremendous personality, individuality, charisma, pianistic and musical brilliance.”. Tonight I have no reason to alter this judgement.
A most memorable recital both philosophically and musically, emotionally and deeply moving in design. He received an immediate standing ovation from the audience, not common at Duszniki.
