Fazioli Pianoforti

Season 2017 - 2018

Our 12th concert series opens with a name that might sound new even to connoisseurs, thus reinforcing our commitment to identifying young talents endowed with the qualities typical of exceptional interpreters.

This is why we decided to open the Concert Season with the Rumanian Daniel Petrica Ciobanu: when we listened to him in 2014 during a private concert at our Fazioli Concert Hall, where he played among many other talents from prestigious institutions, he made an indelible impression on us for his histrionic and creative musical personality.

Indeed, the selection of all the soloists was carried out with the purpose of making room for those who, in our opinion, really have “something new to say”. Three of them are just over or just under thirty years old. The Armenian Nareh Arghamanyan, raised in a heavily Sovietised area, has known the hardships caused by the tragic historical and economical situation of her country, finding in the piano her reason for redemption. Alessandro Deljavan, born to Italian mother and Persian father, stands out as one of the most interesting pianists of his generation, especially after successfully taking part in the 2009 Van Cilburn Competition in Texas. The Swiss Francesco Piemontesi, residing in Berlin, has treasured the teachings of Alfred Brendel and possesses that rare combination of solid technique and intellectual vivacity that make his every interpretation so enthralling.

Next to these names, whose careers are in full ascent, are two shining stars of the musical firmament. Angela Hewitt, celebrated Bach interpreter, comes back to Sacile. As tireless as she might be, she was able to include yet another concert in her already full schedule,by virtue of her great affection for the Fazioli pianos. On the other hand, it will be the first time at the Fazioli Concert Hall for Alexander Lonquich, internationally renowned soloist and conductor, who has started a fortunate collaboration with the Colibrì Ensemble, Orchestra da Camera di Pescara (Pescara Chamber Orchestra). It is a very ambitious event in terms of unprecedented size of the ensemble hostedin our Concert Hall, since the programme includes no less than the Concerto for piano and Orchestra op. 54 by Schumann.

Chamber music remains a fundamental chapter in our concert season. This time again, we have engaged leading personalities, who interpret chamber music as continuative research between musical partners. And here comes the concert of the violinist Francesca Dego and the pianist Francesca Leonardi, fresh from completing the major endeavor of recording all of Beethoven’s Sonatas for Deutsche Grammophon. The Venetian Gloria Campaner comes back to the Fazioli Concert Hall, this time with the acclaimed German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser, judged“memorable” by the Los Angeles Times and with whom she has been collaborating for some time. To stay on the topic “comebacks”: if, back in 2007, the Trio di Parma played a monographic programme focused on Ravel, this time they will entertain the audience with an all-Beethoven programme.

To end in style, the series will be closed by a concert on two pianos. After ten years, the Canadian pianists Louis Lortie and Hélène Mercier come back to Sacile together in order to present part of the repertoire included in the recording projects through which the Duo resumed its activity after a long pause.

As usual, we hope to have succeeded in putting together a multifaceted mosaic of repertoires and interpreters able to arouse curiosity and interest in our audience.
