 Francesco Nicolosi's Mozart March 23, 2012 By Robert M. (San Fernando, CA) See All My Reviews " I bought this album because I heard Mr. Nicolosi's rendition of Ten Variations on "Unser dummer Pobel" on Classical KUSC radio in Southern California. I am most impressed with Francesco Nicolosi's interpretation of Mozart in one of his darker sides. Mr. Nicolosi has a great command of the feelings that Wolfgang Mozart sought to impart to his listeners. The keyboard work here is very fluid and has great connectivity throughout and it is most difficult to turn away at any time to pursue other interests. The pieces are well layered to draw the listener ever deeper into the soul of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. I hope that someday I might hear these piano pieces live.
