Column Piano e Forte
, nr.12 / 2002 (Gian Paolo Minardi)
... Between the last generations of our pianists, every year
more and more crowded by the stringent sequence of the Context, Andrea Bacchett’s figure
got his own importance, as far as originality is concerned, in a comparison with some
efficience-models to which the young Genoese pianist seems to oppose more inventive patterns.
It’s significant that he thought to expose such his intentions in a sort of self-portrait
composed of 3 CDs; in the last one two Berio’s sonatas are associated to Luciano Berio’s 6
Encores; as to show the stylistic abyss that separates these two compositors becomes a goad
for the player, who, if on one hand loosens a fluent, eloquent but in any way stiff Mozart,
on the other one he penetrate in Berio’s grids with a determination that is equal to the
curiosity to look for which reasons hide behind the more exposed diagram of the play.
And actually the result is to give a temper to each of these brief pages, even seeing that
sort of white heat that the very apparent casualness would hardly let us suspect. ...

This is the third "portrait" that VideoRadio
dedicates to Andrea Bacchetti. It does it with live recordings: three snapshots that give
to the CD a vivid and extempore tone, now shaded like the one of a Monet’s painting,
now biting like the one of much informal art.
The comparison is not ungrounded, because Bacchetti is a very sensitive player, he is able
to remodel music "in the moment": now suspending in a charming and at the same
time metaphysic way Mozart’s Sonatas K 330 and K 570, now throwing or dropping the
"timbriche" on the canvases of Berio’s Six Encores.

...To be pointed out as well, in this piano repertoire,
the execution of the 6 Encores, real concentrates of sound fantasy, extremely well presented -
in a transparent and very communicative way - by Andrea Bacchetti ...
