Francesco travels to Prague this month to give three performances with the Czech Philharmonic and Manfred Honeck on 25, 26 and 27 January 2017. Francesco joins the orchestra at the Rudolfinum in Prague to perform Beethoven Piano Concerto No.3.
Widely renowned for his interpretation of early Romantic repertoire, Francesco has often performed Beethoven, including for his acclaimed recent debut with the LA Philharmonic at Hollywood Bowl:
“…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.”
Prior to the orchestral concert, Francesco performs a recital at the Rudolfinum on 23 January, performing works by Mozart, Liszt, Maximilian Schnaus and Schubert.
Elsewhere in January, Francesco also performs Mozart Piano Concerto No.27 with both the Utah Symphony on 13 and 14 January and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra on 29 January and 2 February.
