Alberto Ferro, laureate of the 2015 Busoni Competition at the age of 19 and the youngest laureate of the 2016 Queen Elisabeth Piano Competition, enthralled spectators with an uncommon blend of freshness and maturity. With this CD entirely dedicated to his performance in Brussels in May 2016, the young Italian - sixth laureate of the Competition, but also recipient of the Musiq’3 Audience Prize - starts his live performances with the supreme test of international competitions, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who has seen the downfall of many great talents. This was by no means the case for Alberto Ferro, whose 21st Concerto charmed the public during the semi-finals at the Flagey concert hall. As for Liszt’s 12th Hungarian Rhapsody, performed in a recital in the course of these same semi-finals, it shows the full range of this young man’s mastery, crowned with just that spirit and style that sweeps away the listener. The disc concludes with his wonderful First Concerto of Rachmaninov that we are happy to find here, and where the young Sicilian shows his intimate understanding of romantic music. Ferro-Mozart-Liszt-Rachmaninov: an encounter here made imperishable, not to close a chapter, but to hail the birth of a new talent… whose resources are far indeed from being exhausted! Alberto Ferro, lauréat du Concours Busoni 2015 à 19 ans et plus jeune des lauréats du Concours Reine Elisabeth de piano 2016, a subjugué les spectateurs par un mélange rare de fraîcheur et de maturité. Cet Italien de 20 ans seulement, prix du public Musiq’3, commence ce CD de ses prestations live par le juge suprême des concours internationaux, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a fait chuter bien de grands talents. Rien de tel pour Alberto Ferro, dont le 21e Concerto a séduit le public pendant les demi-finales à Flagey. Son interprétation de la 12e Rhapsodie hongroise de Franz Liszt, jouée en récital pendant ces mêmes demi-finales, montre toute l’étendue de la maîtrise du jeune homme, agrémentée de ce qu’il faut d’esprit et de style pour emporter l’auditeur. Enfin, le disque se clôture par un merveilleux 1er Concerto de Rachmaninov qu’on retrouve ici avec bonheur, et où le jeune Sicilien montre sa compréhension intime de la musique romantique. Ferro-Mozart-Liszt-Rachmaninov : une rencontre dont le souvenir est ici perpétué, non pour clore un chapitre, mais pour saluer la naissance d’un nouveau talent… dont les ressources sont loin d’être épuisées.
