BBC Music Magazine, September 2011, J. D.

"Musical predigrees don't come much better than Francesco Piemontesi's. At 28, the Swiss pianist has been through many fine musical rites of passage, including Borletti-Buitoni Trust, BBC New Generation Artists and the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels. In this recital -an album dedicated to one of his mentors, Alfred Brendel- he proves his worth.

It's not just intelligent programme planning -Handel paired with Brahms's response to him. JS Bach respectively with Liszt's -that makes Piemontesi stands out; this is seriously classy pianism. Clarity of thought is complimented by clarity of touch, incisive intellect by a good dose of fantasy. The details are joy: the gradual accelerando into Handel Prelude, the improvised ornamentation in the Bach Partita, the rhythmic springiness that underpins the Baroque works and equally the Brahms that pays tribute to them. The lightest, clearest moments of the Brahms Handel Variations -try Variation XVI- are exquisitely voiced and full fo charm, and these qualities are to e found elsewhere, in the richest and strongest variation, fugue and all. There's space to breathe and to dance. The Liszt transcription of Bach's Fantasy and Fugue in G minor has huge panache : Piemontesi seems to relish recreating the sonorities of a cathral organ on a mere grand piano"

the Telegraph, 04/08/2011, G. N.

"The young Swiss-Italian Francesco Piemontesi combines communicative panache with remarkable insight. He prefaces a virile, sensitive performance of Brahms's Handel Variations with a stylistically discerning one of the Handel suite from which Brahms took his theme.
