Only a few pianists can go from a sparkling Mendelssohn (Double Concerto for piano and Violin, with Alberto Lysy and Lord Yehudi Menuhin) to a thundering Liszt (12 Etudes d’Exécution Trancendente) while passing an aristocratic, sophisticated and charming Ravel (Gaspard de la Nuit and Miroirs).
Harold Schoenberg, The New York Times
From silence till steed power (De Falla’s Fantasia Bética, Liszt’s Dante Sonate, C minor Polonaise and Brahms’s F minor Sonate).
SVZ Salzburger Volkszeitung
Aquiles Delle Vigne, fantastic pianist and artist, impossible to be compared (Debussy’s Préludes).
Pierre-Petit, Le Figaro, Paris
In every sense, a Master recital. He moved on to twilight recital’s major section with Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit and Miroirs. This was a splendid playing, grappling with phenomenal technique in Alborada del gracioso, Ondine and Scarbo […] It was an engrossing exhibition of how to realise the brilliant colour of Ravel’s passage of virtuosity.
Clive 0’Connell, The Age, Melbourne
Great monument to Beethoven’s and Schubert’s Sonates […] Transcendent artist and sublime pianist […] Monolithic Beethoven’s op. 111 […] Schubert’s D. 960 dramatic, grandiose and phenomenal virtuosity.
Lluis Trullén, ABC, Barcelona
In Aquiles Delle Vigne piano meets its master. Amazing Liszt’s Sonate in b minor! The performance was a full demonstration of control of the music and bend it to his will […] Full of sound and fury […] The 24 Préludes, by Chopin, with noble and grandiose conception… Great moment of pure Music.
Charles Branning, Caller Times, Fort Worth Star-Telegram
During the Ravel’s Concerto for the Left Hand, Aquiles Delle Vigne played with a formidable interpretation, powerful and dramatic […] He is able to galvanise all the virtuosity problems and give us a show of his stupendous and incredible abilities.
Maria Teresa Castrillon, El Heraldo de Mexico
A prince of the piano (Beethoven’s Sonates op. 57 and op. 111 and Piazzolla Tangos).
La Repubblica, Rome
Grand Seigneur of Pianists (Debussy’s Préludes).
PRS, Rheinische Post, Düsseldorf
Aquiles Delle Vigne plays with the sound of a Symphonic Orchestra. His style is vigorous, robust, with conviction and without any doubt (Beethoven’s Eroica Variationen and Chopin’s Second Sonate).
Courant Telegraaf, Den Haag
Franz den Herder, Leider Dagblad, Amsterdam
Like his master Claudio Arrau, Aquiles Delle Vigne plays with a noble, inspired and sublime style: with fluid interior and passionate colour (Mozart’s C minor and Schumann’s C majeur Fantaisies) […] Memorable Liszt’s Sonate!: passion, force, tension, transcendental virtuosity, power, conviction and above all noblesse.
Alfred Hoffmann, Actualitatea Muzicala, Bucarest
Sublime Beethoven’s Fourth Concerto.
O Globo, Rio de Janeiro
Overwhelming Liszt’s Second Concerto, grandiose interpretation. Octaves and thirds with meteoric clarity.
Enrique Hernandez, La Prensa, Buenos Aires
Aquiles Delle Vigne, powerful and mercurial pianist […] Magic, marvellous Ravel (Miroirs) Impressive Mussorgski (Pictures) […] Other four ‘encores’, in the line of the great ‘Romantik’ of the piano.
Nini Ganguzza, La Sicilia
Aquiles Delle Vigne, real giant of the piano.
Pieter Van Heen, Muziekjournaal, Den Haag
Liszt’s fire for Delle Vigne’s passion (Liszt’s Concerto N° 2).
Fulvia Conter, Giornale di Brescia
Real sublime during the Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto with the National Orchestra and Georges Octors […] Steel structure and spirit.
Alice Libert, La Libre Belgique
Exciting and exalted Beethoven’s Fantasia for Piano, Chœur and Orchestra […] virtuosity, temperament, overwhelming.
Magdalène Cotte, La semaine musicale d’Anvers
Aquiles Delle Vigne and Alberto Lysy, at Menuhin Festival in Gstadt, full pianistic noblesse, ‘Seigneurs de la Musique’ (Ravels’s integral for piano and violin).
Der Bund, Bern
Aquiles Delle Vigne, world-class pianist, began the Concerto and put the listeners into spell. It was absolutely magic […] His technique was obviously grandiose and impeccable […] A performance to remember (Beethoven’s Concerti N° 3 and N° 4).
Natchar Pancharoen, Bangkok News
Aquiles Delle Vigne, temperament and passion to serve the Music.
Jacques Steheman, Le Soir, Brussels
Prodigieuse interpretation of the De Falla’s Fantasia Bética.
