Corriere del Ticino - January 30th, 2019 (Giovanni Gavazzeni)

... Bacchetti indulges a very few to Romantic abandons and languors. And this sentimental reticence makes him able to transfigure Mozart and Bach's music in very fine lines. Bacchetti prioritises lightness and elegance on timbre richness and phrasing variations. His attitude offers touching sensations for the clear details and the proportion between the parts, but also for the quality in phrasing in the cantabile. Bacchetti's reticence never becomes an aseptic neoclassical perfection. His Mozart was deservedly applauded by the audience ...
The two encores were precious. The Prelude from the English Suite No. 2 in A was perfect in the fingers' game, with a rhythmic, dragging anxiety, as if music was about to break the boundary but never reaching the break point. After that, to complete the soirée, the Goldberg Variations' Aria: melancholic, distant, enigmatic, this Aria could be considered Bacchetti's signature. In fact the pianist has always been obsessed by this masterpiece by Bach ...

Then the well-known pianist Andrea Bacchetti appeared. He often performed in Brescia. After the dense orchestral introduction, the soloist performed Mozart's K.503 with confidence, clarity of sound, regularity and extremely well-organized dynamism. The «Allegro maestoso» is complex, virtuoso and masterly: the piano is part of the orchestral discourse. Mozart, in 1786, seemed not to be really interested in the pleasure with which he had imposed himself on the Viennese public. The «Andante» followed full of ideas, expressive. Finally, the «Allegretto», imaginative, playful, operatic. Long applauded, the pianist conceded an excellent Sonata by Scarlatti, with freshness, good taste. ...
