But at the same time, the execution given by Bacchetti has known to value with efficacy, concerning the dynamic and timbre aspect, those expressive moments that stand out the general atmosphere of this composition ...

The evening of the last december 21st was really exceptional considering music and interpretation ... Andrea Bacchetti offered an impressive, unforgettable try ... in his personality, what impress are his desire to find a dialogue with his listeners and his will to make himself clear and to tale who he is with humility (a very rare gift) and irony. Also these qualities help to appreciate completely his art, that tends to - we say it again - excellence, to absolute. And, so, he will be difficult to forget.

It does not take many word to introduce to MUSICA readers the Genoese pianist Andrea Bacchetti, with whom I had a long conversation at the start of February. Enfant prodige and pupil of Luciano Berio, one of the most exciting Bach interpreters of his generation, Bacchetti is a shy man, strict with himself in a very singular way. But in his words, in his so rapid and captivating talk, a total dedication to music and a sharp awareness of the major actual problem of classical music - communicating with the audience - shine through. Also for this awareness Bacchetti chose to participate in many episodes went on the air between autumn 2010 and spring 2011 of the multi-coloured TV circus of «Chiambretti Night Show»: in that atmosphere, smartly dressed in his concert suit, Andrea interacted with other guests of Piero Chiambretti in a way that was now surreal for some uncertain duets with the starlette on call, now amazing with a Toccata by Bach that reaffirmed his value in a true sonorous chaos. Of course, critics were not missed and exactly from this point our chat started in Milanese office of Sony ...

This is Bacchetti's fourth in-depth single composer exploration after his work on Cherubini, Galuppi and Marcello, and his long reflection on these works has included comparisons with other theorists and interpreters as well as immersing himself in the original extant material. Bacchetti sums up his performances as a synthesis of this wide background and detailed examination of the sources of the music and its times - something which has brought him "inside" these pieces as much as anyone. Interpretation of these works is of course something which remains intuitive and intangible, and as we don't really know how fast or exactly in which manner these pieces were played there is no-one who can say Bacchetti is wrong in his performance decisions. I for one salute his occasional abandonment of accepted trends. With the utter conviction of these performances there are none which seem "wrong", and certainly not after the initial adjustment has been made to your expectations. ...

Its fashion stays exactly in its intricacy. The Triple by Mozart, that I'll play with Canino and Salerno, is very different: it's a dedication to the noble family Lodron from Trento, and so it is a caprice destined to the court, of more lovable and "lighter" taste» ...

LEUCHTENDE MELODIEN ... In der "Aria variata alla maniera italiana" sind es vor allem die sehr gesanglichen Melodien, die an den italienischen Barockstil erinnern. In diesen kantablen Passagen zeigt sich eine Stärke Bacchettis: Sein Anschlag ist weich und warm, der Klang klar und schön. Damit bringt er viele der Melodien zum Leuchten.
LEBENDIGES SPIEL - Bacchetti wählt oft sehr langsame Tempi. Besonders deutlich wird das bei Ferruccio Busoni. Zwar sind seine Bearbeitungen von Bachschen Choralvorspielen durchaus selbständig. Doch wer noch einen tanzenden Ton Koopman im Ohr hat, wird erst einmal überrascht sein von Bacchettis Ruhe. ... Bacchetti nutzt dafür alle echnischen Möglichkeiten eines modernen Konzertflügels - und überzeugt mit einer musikalisch durchdachten Interpretation dieser zeitlosen Werke.

... It is evident how, choosing these Sonatas, the interpreter meant to catch especially a feature in the brilliant composer's personality, something more shaded than the pronounced and creative character it is possible to find in the extraordinary pianistic phrasing; Bacchetti is going to explore a deeper and more intimate Scarlatti, being able to catch continuous surprises...

Records that exalt his quality as very fine interpreter with an absolute instinct and lucid intelligence, entering with this cd in a so great virtuosity of sound control, of little gestures and microshades of colour that evokes the image of a precious music box of Eighteenth century. A player who is able to make this with a nowadays top level piano (a Fazioli) seems - more than gifted - even fated to the old instrument. We whetted him about it. Actually he hesitated. Never say never.

.. The concert by Andrea Bacchetti, dedicated to Bach and Berio's pages and further enriched by executions of Scarlatti, Villa Lobos and Chopin as encores, was charming. The Genoese pianist showed an impressive approach to the page (already starting from the fifth of the English Suites and the fifth of the French ones, "attacked " with an alive pungency, that - we could say - is connoted of a complex, organic colour): his certainty, property, his way to express the language were amazing; the languages, because the pieces by Bach and Berio are separated by a time space of two hundred years ...

A true high stature artist, who is very technically fierce and gifted of a notable capability to comprehend the pieces that he played and recreate the stylistic and spiritual premises which inspired them. In this way, the baroque play (in the noblest meaning of this term) of the thirty Goldberg Variations was performed with plenty concentration and internalization and with a touch that, as long as possible, recreated the sound of harpsichord for which they were composed. Every variation speech was lightly clarified, well evidenced the recurrent themes in canons and fugues, expressive the phrasing, well calibrated the agogic. A very convincing performance that thrilled. ... Long and warm applauses.

... About that smart sprite of keyboard that Andrea Bacchetti is, we cannot say anything but repeat: in these years he went on perfecting more and more "his" sound, that is made of a very calibrated and limpid touch, a crystalline timbre and a miraculous precision of tempos and dynamics, with a "Viennese" cantabile ability, that makes Bacchetti the ideal interpreter of Mozart, and so of that Piano Concerto N.2 by Beethoven, played more than ever in the style of Mozart, that the Genoese maestro performed perfectly: splendid for his choice of tempos and tone-colour the Central Adagio, in which keyboard, under Bacchetti's fingers, was of a peerless softness. ...

Bacchetti played the "Toccata in E minor (BWV 914)" and the "French Suite N.5 in G major (BWV 816)" by J.S. Bach; in both these compositions, his harpsichord, agile and clear touch on the modern, splendidly sounding keyboard got great suggestions across to the audience. Fugatos in the Toccata and dances' sequence in the Suite are exalted by the pianist's great sensibility; Bacchetti, especially in slow tempos, immerses us into purity of Bach's atmospheres. ...

Three former infant prodigies at IUC

teatro.org - December 4th, 2013 - Umberto Asti

... a score that represents on the one hand Bach's capability to regain style and on the other hand Bacchetti's interpretative coherence in confronting himself with his favorite composer. A little virtuoso Bach, for necessity and for choice, and yet the lack of brightness clears some space to a thoughtful melancholy that looks to us to be a new note in the path of the Genoese pianist. ... By the stylistic point of view, it's a not philologic Bach at all, with a large use of pedals and a very regular phrasing. But at the same time, we see a Bach in a plenty XVIII century spirit, in the double sign of those clarity and anxiety that are typical of that age. ... Sometimes, the cure in details becomes preciosity, although elegance and clearness of timbre never fail. Bacchetti comes across being perfectly at ease: he found a difficult balance between intellectual asceticism (which he is inclined to) and a rare introspective finesse ... the exact meeting point between rational control and sensitive abandon, between being cantabile and clear, between vitality and Apollonian objectivity.
