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 ...

Virgilio Sieni's "Sonatas" in front of the others' pain
La Cronaca di Piacenza - January 25th, 2009
... "Collaboration with Sieni - Filippini and Bacchetti said
- comes from curiosity and possibility to play
combining music and dance; Sieni has a long relationship with Bach, that is always actual, and this particular juxtaposition
of his music to solitude tragedy is really interesting" ...
"Bach, really actual and all to dance"

photography ... we attend an assay to communicate the incommunicable through Rocco Filippini's
cello and Andrea Bacchetti's piano, images and dance that is ritual, sacral medium of meeting
with the other ...
"In this way the body transfigures pain"
Libertà, Piacenza - January 27th, 2009 - Elisa Malacalza
... Bacchetti confirms once again his great musicality and his fancy for
research and sounds and colours' choices that enrich music for keyboard written in Italian
Eighteenth Century, music that the artist - he more than any other before - is bringing
back to light ...
Symphonies by Galuppi, Haydn and Mozart live again with Bacchetti
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 ...
Languid and majestic Bacchetti - From Bach to Debussy and Chopin among learned melodic crossings
Libertà, Piacenza - February 21st, 2009 - Alessandra Gregori
... After having faced Bach's counterpoint with skill and strength,
Bacchetti presented a selection from Lieder ohne Worte by Mendelssohn and, after these
inner cantos, an anthology by Debussy, passionate romanticism by Chopin and, as final,
a riff full of jazz movements ... it's not possible not to appreciate Bacchetti's love
for keyboard and music ...

"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
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.

"Festival de música clasica hasta el viernes"
Cultura 23, Guayaquil - 25 de Mayo 2009
Bacchetti toca el piano con sutileza. Acaricia las teclas, aún en las notas fuertes las teclas son accionadas en
movimientos cortos. Es un pianista de estilo sobrio, pero de sonido vigoroso. 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
