Leonardo Colafelice, Piano – Sunday, February 28, 2016 @ 4 p.m. in Opperman Music Hall. Nineteen year old prodigy Leonardo Colafelice was one of the six finalists at the prestigious XIV Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition in Tel Aviv, where he also received prizes for best performer of a Classical Concerto, best performer of a Chopin composition and most outstanding pianist up to 22 years of age.
“Powerful playing with technical brilliance, and yet with a lot of expression and dynamic variation characterizing the style of the Italian.” Ole Straarup, Aarhus Stiftstidende
“Leonardo Colafelice’s performance of the piano concerto was mesmerizing. The artist’s consummate control and understated power was a joy to hear and to watch.” Daniel J. Kushner, Democrat and Chronicle
“He drew a rich, full tone that never got bangy even in the somewhat crazed textures of the cadenza, and countered dramatic passages with stretches of poetry in an emotionally mature performance.” Daniel Hathaway, clevelandclassical.com
