Francesco joins the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Thomas Søndergård for two concerts on 6 and 8 April 2016, performing Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4. When Francesco performed this concerto with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Bachtrack wrote that “Francesco Piemontesi went on to deliver one of the most assured performances of the piece I can recall hearing. Piemontesi’s conception was mobile, almost daringly so, and unfussy. Yet, he rendered this concerto’s uniquely rhapsodic elements with a deeply-felt intensity and, at times, an ecstatic quality.”

Later in the month, Francesco performs the same concerto with David Afkham and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra on 28 and 29 April.
