Instrumentalists — Piano

  • Manager: Tim Fox
    Management Territory: North America

"Mr. Pollini was especially masterly during the elusive first movement, which shifts between impassioned episodes — with a stirring melody in chords over an onrushing left-hand accompaniment — and passages of tender poignancy. He brought brio, with a touch of impish wildness, to the second movement, a march, and magisterial lyricism to the slow, melancholic final movement...all-Chopin second half...Pollini showed Italianate sensitivity...was daringly alert to the turbulent elements...ended with a rhapsodic, glistening account of the Scherzo No. 3....all impressively performed. —Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

"You will have to live a long life to hear Chopin of such deilcate, jeweled transparency in concert." —The Boston Musical Intelligencer

"Pianist Maurizio Pollini's mastery is beyond reproach..." —The Washington Post
