Leonora Armellini’s glorious Chopin – Piano City Pordenone

Piano City Pordenone Italy

Wonderful Chopin recital by

Leonora Armellini
Played with a truly noble spirit with such wonderful sound .It was hard to believe it was a Yamaha piano but when you are a true artist that listens to every sound with such refined musicianship miracles can happen.
A magnificent Sonata in B flat minor op 35.It reminded me of the limpet type playing of Gilels where his fingers seemed to fit the keys so perfectly.
She played too with the same aristocratic sense of style and architecture.
The waltz op 34 n.3 was played with such irresistible sense of rhythm ,the ornaments played with the clarity and finesse of the greatest of Polish pianists like Askenase or Smeterlin or dare I say above all like Rubinstein.
Four mazurkas just added to the impression that here is a great artist that the world should know.
The Polonaise Heroique op 53 was played with all the nobility and total assurance of the great virtuosi of the past.
But even here there were glimmers or originality as her ears delved deep into the rich harmonies and found jewels that glistened and shone with such refined good taste.
Even though there is a cavalcade of piano recitals the public insisted on more and were regaled with three encores.
Such subtle sounds in the first one which I did not recognise….could have been Szymanowski….I like to think it was.
Debussy Jardins sous la pluie of such wondrous colours was followed by an impassioned account of the Revolutionary study.
What better way to end this concert to a live audience distanced as must be these Corona virus days.But at least concerts cancelled in Italy since the beginning of March are starting up cautiously again.
                                                 Image may contain: one or more people and people sitting

Nicola Losito whose concert in Padua was one of the first to be cancelled on the 8th March played yesterday before an audience three months on.

All can be heard live or in playback on Piano City Pordenone web site.
It is not the first time that I have been astounded by the musicianship and playing of this remarkable young artist.
