Review of the concert at Santa Cecilia (3)

by Claudio Listani, posted on La Voce
"Kent Nagano, an elegant and refined director"

".....In the Mozart concerto, the understanding between Nagano and Rafal Blechacz, the pianist who is young but of great international importance, was perfect,  exhibiting a bright amalgamation between the orchestra and the soloist,  certainly of great grip and musical charm....."

Review of the concert at Santa Cecilia (2)

written by Stefano Ceccarelli

Original review

".....Blechacz suona da virtuoso assoluto: lasciano stupiti la perizia, il tocco delicatissimo e l’esecuzione delle impervie scale, ascendenti e discendenti. Più che un prorompente esecutore, è un cesellatore virtuoso: la resa della sua esecuzione pare opera di un giardiniere avveduto, che adorna le proprie piante con coreografie d’acqua, con zampilli spumanti. Nagano ben dirige l’orchestra e l’accompagna nella concertazione del solista...."
