Federico Colli talks to James Imam ahead of the release of his latest disc of Scarlatti Sonatas -Chandos Records CHAN 20134-

 

"He is not content with simply being a first-rate pianist.
His mission is to get closer to the truth.
And guided by Thomas Aquinas’ notion that ‘beauty is the splendour of truth’ he is doing so through his playing."
