Leonardo Colafelice

"Powerful playing with technical brilliance, and yet with a lot of expression and dynamic variation characterizing the style of the Italian."

"Leonardo Colafelice's performance of the piano concerto was mesmerizing. The artist's consummate control and understated power was a joy to hear and to watch."

"He drew a rich, full tone that never got bangy even in the somewhat crazed textures of the cadenza, and countered dramatic passages with stretches of poetry in an emotionally mature performance."
