... The qualities which have distinguished Bacchetti's previous recordings are again in evidence here:great clarity in his part-playing and voicing, excellent chording and a command of an overall phrase which is most impressive. At all times, Bacchetti's playing is intensely musical, clearly at one with the work itself, grace notes and spread chords are a further delight. In short, this is first-class musicianship ... here, in stylistic terms, Bacchetti resists the temptation to romanticize the music in terms of late-nineteenth-century Afghan-collar-robed virtuosi, concentrating on the inner nature of the individual pieces and thus bringing this unique and very well worthwhile recital to an end...


IRR Internation Record Review - January, 2014 (Robert Matthew-Walker)


... Es este Bach "italiano" el que ahora recrea el pianista genovés armado en su talante y calidez irrenunciablemente sureños. Todas las páginas que integran el CD aparecen animadas precisamente, tanto en su génesis como en su interpretación, por un hálito extravertido, melódico y - permitase el término - hasta risueño. Incluso los episodios más interiorizados o dramáticos, aquellos en los que asoma el Bach más luterano y canónico, parecen templados por esa vitalidad expansiva que de modo tan palmario se revela en la música del gran Domenico Scarlatti y en el arte interpretativo de Bacchetti ... El disco es todo él interesante. Por sus tan inteligentemente seleccionados contenidos como como por las interpretaciones, irrebatibles en su pureza pianística y por la profundización de un repertorio en el que Bacchetti se muestra hondamente identificado. ...

Andrea Bacchetti (Génova, 1977) no es un pianista de recorridos convencionales.

Pero Bacchetti no es sólo colecionista de rarezas y así lo demuestran sus numerosas grabaciones consagradas a Bach, de quien tiene previsto grabar la integral para teclado en el sello Sony. También destaca su vincolación con el repertorio contemporáneo, en especial su familiaridad con la obra pianística de Bario, con quien mantuvo una relación tanto musical como humana que marcó sus años de formación. ... el pianista visita el próximo martes el Istituto Italiano de Cultura con un recital que, además, propone en primicia el estreno de Tre post x Scarlatti, del compositor italiano Fabio Vacchi...

Also should interpretation come naturally?
It should be as most natural as possible. I propose to myself to plat in a free and inspired way, without too much cerebral evaluations. These musics by Scarlatti were conceived in order to be played at the moment, improvising.
