Francesco joins Sir Roger Norrington and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe at the Settimane Musicali di Ascona, of which Piemontesi is the Artistic Director, for a performance at the Chiesa San Francesco on 28 September 2016. Together they perform Beethoven Piano Concerto No.3, which they perform again at Schloss Esterházy in Eisenstadt on 30 September.
Piemontesi recently performed Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.4 for his acclaimed LA Philharmonic debut at the Hollywood Bowl. The LA Times wrote that is was “…an unaffected, alternately sparkling and passionately inward rendition of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4, featuring Swiss pianist Francesco Piemontesi in his L.A. Phil debut… Piemontesi showed an unpredictable temperament all his own.”
