Federico Colli - Piano
Chandos’ new exclusive collaboration with the recent Salzburg and Leeds
competition winner Federico Colli is kicking off with this first volume in a
unique Scarlatti series.
Playing on a modern Steinway, the Italian pianist – internationally recognised for his intelligent, imaginative interpretations and impeccable technique – here explores the keyboard sonatas of Scarlatti, taking a fresh approach from a philosophical angle, by grouping the compositions into ‘chapters’ in order to reflect the many contrasts of his life and his contradictory personality.
In personal booklet notes Colli reveals: ‘I conceived a map of a journey into transcendental thought, beyond the works’ phenomenological meaning. Each chapter has a title and the individual sonatas in each chapter refer back to the permeating image of its basic idea.’
This album is an exceptional start to what promises to be an exciting, long-lasting partnership.
