Francesco joins the Royal Northern Sinfonia and conductor Alexandre Bloch for a performance of Mozart Piano Concerto No. 25 at the Sage Gateshead on 3 March 2016. The concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.

Francesco recently performed the concerto with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and fellow Intermusica artist Andrew Manze. The Herald Scotland wrote that “Francesco Piemontesi, in performances of wonderfully-unpretentious lucidity, brought the sheer symphonic weight of Mozart’s 25th Concerto in C major to the fore, though, refreshingly, not over-dominating the structure.”

Francesco then appears in recital at Birmingham Town Hall on 16 March, performing a programme of Mozart Rondo in A minor, K511, and Piano Sonata No.11 in A major, K331, followed by Schumann Kreisleriana and Busoni Toccata.
