Schubert's testament.


  • Claude Debussy, Preludes for piano, Book II, L 131
  • Franz Schubert, Piano Sonata No. 21 in B-flat major, D 960

“Piemontesi performs these three outstanding works with fleet fingers and exceptional insight. His deep affinity for the music is evident in the way he captures the ebb and flow of each movement; the pearlescent tone he delivers when appropriate; and the abundance of telling details…” wrote the Wall Street Journal about Franz Schubert's last three sonatas, recorded by Francesco Piemontesi for Pentatone in 2019.

Born in Locarno in 1983, the Swiss pianist has made a name for himself for his elegant and refined pianism. Such qualities enable him to restore crystal-clear performances of the masterpieces of The Classical period, Mozart in particular, early Romanticism and French composers of the early 20th century. It is no coincidence that his teachers include Alfred Brendel. Since the BBC named him a “New Generation Artist” in 2009, Piemontesi has performed alongside the world's leading orchestras, from the Berliner Philharmoniker to the London Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Symphony. Since 2012, he has been Artistic Director of the Settimane Musicali Ascona.
