Notes and Editorial Reviews

In his first solo recital for Naive, Swiss pianist Francesco Piemontesi, who studied with Alfred Brendel, Cécile Ousset and Alexis Weissenberg, has chosen Mozart: a composer who will effectively preoccupy him for some time. He is embarking on the complete sonatas of Mozart, and he will perform at Wigmore Hall, London, before pursuing the complete concertos. This recording marks but the beginning of this great Mozartian's ambitious project. Best newcomer in the BBC Music Magazine Awards 2012.
