Italian pianist Federico Colli, winner of the 2011 Salzburg Mozart Competition, is praised for his “crystalline brilliance and translucence” (Gramophone). This special concert event provides an exciting opportunity to hear Colli perform live – just two days prior to his New York debut at Lincoln Center. Forming the centerpiece of Colli’s program is Mozart’s Piano Sonata No. 5 in G major, K.283, surrounded by Scarlatti’s distinctive Six Sonatas and Beethoven’s sublime “Appassionata.”

Praised for his “beautiful pianism with wonderful tone; very sensitive to nuances, voicing and atmosphere; intelligent, energetic and never heavy-handed” (The Independent), Federico Colli has established himself as an exciting, international artist, recognized for his stage charisma, sophisticated palette of tonal colors, and his intelligent insights into the repertoire.

Since winning First Prize at the Salzburg Mozart Competition in 2011 and Gold Medal at the Leeds International Piano Competition in 2012, Colli has performed at some of the world’s leading concert halls and worked with a number of eminent conductors, including Valery Gergiev, Sakari Oramo, Sir Mark Elder, Vasily Petrenko, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Yuri Temirkanov, Alan Buribayev, Juraj Valčuha, Joji Hattori, and Thomas Søndergård.

In 2017, Colli made his debuts at the Royal Albert Hall and Cadogan Hall, London. His 2018 season includes concerts with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Mariinsky Orchestra as well as making his US debut at Ravinia Festival and performing recitals at Wigmore Hall in London and at Lincoln Center in New York.

A new partnership with Chandos saw Colli release his new recording of Scarlatti’s keyboard sonatas in May 2018.
