Italian pianist Federico Colli, winner of the 2011 Salzburg Mozart Competition, presents a concert at the Clark Art Institute on Friday, November 30 at 7 pm. Tickets are $22 ($20 Clark members) and may be purchased online at clarkart.edu or by calling the Clark’s box office at 413 458 0524. The concert will be held in the Clark’s auditorium, located in the Manton Research Center. Forming the centerpiece of Colli’s program is Mozart’s Piano Sonata No. 5 in G major, K.283, surrounded by Domenico Scarlatti’s distinctive Six Sonatas and Beethoven’s sublime “Appassionata.” This special concert provides an exciting opportunity to hear Colli perform live—just two days prior to his New York debut at Lincoln Center. Praised for his “crystalline brilliance and translucence” (Gramophone) and “beautiful pianism with wonderful tone” (The Independent), Colli has established himself as an exciting international artist, recognized for his stage charisma, sophisticated palette of tonal colors, and his intelligent insights into the repertoire. Since winning First Prize at the Salzburg Mozart Competition in 2011 and Gold Medal at the Leeds International Piano Competition in 2012, Colli has performed at some of the world’s leading concert halls and has worked with a number of eminent conductors, including Valery Gergiev, Sakari Oramo, Sir Mark Elder, Vasily Petrenko, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Yuri Temirkanov, Alan Buribayev, Juraj Valcuha, Joji Hattori, and Thomas Søndergård. In 2017, Colli made his debuts at the Royal Albert Hall and Cadogan Hall, London. His 2018 season includes concerts with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Mariinsky Orchestra, as well as making his US debut at Ravinia Festival and performing recitals at Wigmore Hall in London and at Lincoln Center in New York.
