Sortilèges: Eliana Grasso and Irene Veneziano four hands (nuke.nonsoloaudiofili.com 2016)

Review by Alfredo di Pietro: http://nuke.nonsoloaudiofili.com/SortilègesElianaGrassoIreneVeneziano/tabid/485/Default.aspx     Penso che il titolo scelto per questo album, “Sortilèges”, compendi in un solo termine sia l’approccio interpretativo delle pianiste Irene Veneziano ed Eliana Grasso, sia le suggestioni evocate in chi lo ascolta. Un lavoro tutto da scoprire dove un primo elemento di sorpresa è rappresentato dall’incontro con [...]

La Provincia di Como- CD Amadeus (27-09-2014)- ITA

“Irene Veneziano sfoggia tutta la sua bravura tecnica ed espressiva e, unitamente a Davide, regala tante emozioni. Suona con intensità, brillantezza, eleganza e gusto straordinari; la sua è una lezione di intelligenza e finezza interpretativa, che lascia un segno profondo. Incanta e convince. ” Alberto Cima

Music Donors (31-01-2013) – ENG

“(…) Let’s talk about Music Donors, a very special exhibition which takes place on the third floor of the Oncology Department of the Civil Hospital in Brescia, not quite a pleasant place.

“The excellent pianist, who played at the Teatro Grande last December with the Festival Orchestra conducted by Pier Carlo Trizio, offers an enchanting recital which shows the great talent of this young interpreter.

Irene Veneziano plays Chopin and Debussy (16-12-2012) – ENG

“Live recorded at the Fazioli Concert Hall on a Fazioli F278 grand-piano, this work by Irene Veneziano bears out her precious musical talent and consecrates her to a full artistic maturity. Chopin and Debussy in the centre of Veneziano’s interpretations. The face-to-face with the Polish composer is an almost fixed course for all the pianists [...]

Grand Theatre: a good performance for the orchestra conducted by Pier Carlo Orizio. Last night, in occasion of the 4th edition of the “Concert for the children”, the hall was crowded.

The sound of Liszt in Villa D’Este (december 2011) – ENG

Irene Veneziano in Warsaw (29-11-2011) – ENG

“A couple of days ago I learned that one of my favourite young pianists in the 2010 Chopin Competition, the Italian Irene Veneziano, would be playing at a private concert in the Royal Castle in Warsaw at an event mounted by the outgoing Ambassador of Italy to Poland, Signore Aldo Mantovani. (…) After the Verdi, [...]

Veneziano, a top quality recital (11-10-2011) – ENG

ISCHIA. Pleasant and interesting was the young pianist Irene Veneziano’s recital, in the concert hall “Mortella” William Watson Foundation, in Forio, in occasion of the chamber music season, which Lina Tufano has been ably promoting since some years, with well-deserved success, first of all under the point of view of people flow.

At the keyboard of the Steinway grand piano, with a dense sound, was the young [...]

Two pianos and an orchestra for a really triumphal ending (17-09-2011) – ENG

The review. Large croud at San Barnaba in occasion of the Festival opening recital.

It is clear Irene Veneziano loves music rather than self-serving display (23-08-2011) – ENG

“I felt many of the same positive vibrations about Irene Veneziano’s playing as I did during the Chopin Competition. See http://www.michael-moran.com/2010/10/xvi-international-fryderyk-chopin.html for my notes on her. The first half of her recital was devoted to Chopin. She carefully chose the Etude in C sharp-minor Op. 25 No.7  which is  a far more reflective and thoughtful piece than the majority of his [...]

Irene’s pianism has been incredibly loved by the audience (23-08-2011) – POL/ENG

(translation below) “W Filharmonii Irene Veneziano, bardzo lubiana na konkursie, nie tylko dobra pianistka, ale jeszcze na dodatek urodziwa i pełna wdzięku. To było takie uczciwe granie, młodzieńcze, nawet dziewczęce, z temperamentem i pazurem, ale bez cienia przesady i epatowania – choć pianistka wyraźnie ma predylekcję do utworów wirtuozowskich. Nie popisuje się w nich jednak, [...]

The Mazurkas by Chopin are intricate and complex music (8-08-2011) – SVE/ENG

(translation below) “Chopins mazurkor är spännande och komplexa, kräver god pedalteknik och rytmkänsla. Irene Veneziano spelar tre, opus 59. Först en av de vackraste folkmelodierna, rask kraft och lekfullt allvar i övriga två. Veneziano spelar artikulerat och osentimentalt med lika delar sensibilitet, fantasi och beslutsam kraft.” http://gd.se/kultur/musik    Monday 8 August 2011 Camilla Dal — [...]

Great music in a small body (5-08-2011) – SVE/ENG

(translation below). “Stor musik i en liten kropp, så kan Irene Veneziano beskrivas. Både Schubert och Liszt hanterades mjukt och dynamiskt, och fantastiskt nyanserat. Till exempel Liszts spanska rapsodi kan inte bli mer kraftfull. Och så polska kvartetten Apollon Musagète som tog sig an Mendelssohns Stråkkvartett i a-moll. De kröp ”under huden” på verket och [...]

The italian Irene Veneziano has again enchanted us (15-10-2010) – POL/ENG

(translation below). “Słuchacze mogli za to usłyszeć dwie wyraziste kreacje. Włoszka Irene Veneziano po raz kolejny czarowała brzmieniami, które wygrywała na fortepianie Fazioli. Jej nokturny brzmiały subtelnie i śpiewnie, a polonez es-moll zadziwił barwą soczystą i dosadną. Idealnie wybrzmiała pełna subtelnych niuansów berceuse. Veneziano jest pianistką, która nie boi się ciszy i w tym właśnie [...]

Irene Veneziano has a phenomenal sense of taste, style and proportions (11-10-2010) – POL/ENG

(translation below). “Na występ Ireny Veneziano czekali na pewno słuchacze spragnieni innego brzmienia niż Stainway. Włoszka po raz drugi grała na fortepianie Fazioli i po raz kolejny udowodniła, że doskonale zna możliwości tego instrumentu. Mazurki opalizowały przydymionym dźwiękiem, a początek scherza E-dur brzmiał tak, jak jeszcze nie brzmiał w tym etapie. Veneziano ma doskonałe wyczucie [...]

Irene Veneziano is proving to be a pianist that “thinks” (5-10-2010) – POL/ENG

(translation below). “To zapewne nie przypadek, że Włoszka Irene Veneziano grała na fortepianie Fazioli. Jej etiuda cis-moll op. 25 była odczytaniem natchnionym, a w e-moll z tego samego opusu ze smakiem cieniowała wszystkie melodyczne niuanse. Frapująco wypadła też w scherzu b-moll, które mimo pomyłek, grała mocno, z rozmachem. Veneziano jawi się jako pianistka myśląca. Słychać [...]
