NEIL THOMSON AND FEDERICO COLLI NEIL THOMSON AND FEDERICO COLLI

Rio de Janeiro

An exciting performance of Federico Colli takes the audience to a standing ovation with the Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira under Neil Thomson

The pianist Federico Colli, Sinfônica Brasileira and conductor Neil Thomson perform a Rachmaninoff to stay in memory

From the first notes of the Beethoven's Sonata n. 22 in F major Op. 54, the Italian pianist Federico Colli started the rapture of the audience into the Rio de Janeiro Municipal Theatre. Then, in the Rachmaninoff's piano concerto n. 3 in D minor Op. 30, the soloist has been going on exuding romanticism, with a passionate and technically impressive interpretation. The pianist has given to the familiar theme of the first movement a touch of mystery to the right level. In the second movement, the OSB gave off a surprising sound, conducted by Thomson with energy and sweetness. In the third movement, here is the height of an unforgettable moment, a show in which all the musicians, conductor and pianist particularly, have shown a deep understanding of the organic working of the Russian project. If the music is part of the dreams, this concert has been a beautiful chimera, which the Brazilian audience will remember for a long time.
