Although he is an extraordinary Bach interpreter (there is no a pianist who did not try to emulate his interpretations), he has in his usual repertoire Schumann, Beethoven, Chopin, Berio, Brahms, Skrjabin, Prokofieff, Rachmaninoff, Gershwin and Debussy; but he also played impressive jazz, chamber music concerts, and with Antonella Ruggiero ...

«Es ist im Allgemeinen sehr schwer, die Musik von Bach rational zu erklären und in Worte zu fassen. Bestenfalls kann man sie nur umschreiben. Ihre Botschaft liegt in ihr selbst. Später in der Musikgeschichte versuchte man, die Gefühle bewusst in Klang umzusetzen, bei Bach geschieht das ganz von alleine. Wie jede große Musik erreichen Bachs Werke durch ihre strukturelle und kompositorische Perfektion einen emotionalen Ausdruck und einen universellen transzendentalen Charakter, die absolut fantastisch und in ihrer Sprache einmalig sind. Ja, mit Bach erleben wir die Kraft der Transzendenz.». ...

Mit einem wunderbar klaren, dynamischen und regelrecht "swingenden" Spiel zeigte uns Bacchetti, dass man Bachs Musik nicht unbedingt analytisch, akademisch oder trocken interpretieren muss. ... Sicher, Andrea Bacchettis Interpretation muss nicht jedem gefallen, aber was der Pianist an spielerischem und gestalterischem Können aufbietet, das ist schon atemberaubend. ... Gerade die Zusammenstellung, die der italienische Meisterpianist ausgewählt hatte und die er ohne Unterbrechung während rund 60 Minuten spielte, ließ die vielen Facetten von Bachs Komponierkunst erkennen und ergab ein erstaunlich kohärentes Gesamtbild, so - und da wären wir wieder beim Jazz - wie wir es von den Solokonzerten eines Keith Jarrett her kennen. ...

I'm for a not-indiscriminate openness to pop music. I know I don't have it in my DNA, but I let the choice to the player»
