Mozart lives, the little that belongs to him, in a very reckless balance between the urgency of money and the urgency of genius. He is 26 years old and writes the concerts here in the title for Vienna, plus the K 415: he seeks income from publishers and the public, he appears on the podium and plays. ... Andrea Bacchetti - whose luxurious international performances have not taken away either study or curiosity about music - is a cultured and very good pianist. The feeling is that he shares with the Mozart of that moment some dreams and some disillusionments: in phrasing that articulates keyboard wisdom, he tells and holds back ...

Rome, Portici - February 10th, 2009 - Valentina di Matteo

It's difficult to attend an execution of Bach's music better than Genoese pianist Bacchetti's ... the pianist conquered the audience with lustre and clearness that he produced every single note with, every embellishment, without ever falling in those slight and accidental executive imperfections that often come with live performances. Every single note was simply perfect ... his sober, severe pianism - supported by an exceptional technique but lacking in striking gestures - materializes sonorous waterfalls made of soft velvet ... Great music for a great interpreter ...

"Tale Festival, irresistible and funny game made of words and music"

La Cronaca, Cremona - April 17th, 2009 - Eleonora Olivi

Pachelbel's Canon is a kind of music history's pantheon and under its dome there were many people, from Mozart (who used it in The Magic Flute) to Brian Eno. Yesterday in Cittanova the pianist Andrea Bacchetti - we remember him as protagonist also in a similar initiative in the Duomo, last year always for Tale Festival - started his Bach Marathon from just this piece, well known to Kantor. The remaining program is all Bach's music - as it has to be - and it spaces from English Suite in D minor to several Chorales. A essay of great interpretative rigor, for the young Genoese pianist.

En los descansos, cuando es el turno de la Orquesta, se da de pequeños golpes en el corazón siguiendo el ritmo, su cuerpo delgado desborda pasión. "El piano me permite eso, comunicar mis emociones", dice el genovès ...


expresiones, Guayaquil - 2 de Junio 2009 - (AGV)

Der 32-järige italienische Pianist Andrea Bacchetti wurde bereits als Kind von Musiker-Legenden wie Karajan, Magaloff oder Horszowski gefördert. Heute gastiert er regelmäßig in den großen Konzerthäusern Europas. Sein Bach-Spiel widersetzt sich konventionellen Interpretationsansatzen, er versucht, eigene ästhetische Vorstellungen zu etablieren. Tatschlich vermag es Bacchetti, Grenzen auszuloten und diese gegebenenfalls auch zu sprengen. Das Ergebnis irritiert und beglückt gleichermaßen.
