Federico Colli

Clemency Burton-Hill with a piano recital given by Federico Colli. Mozart: Variations on Unser dummer Pobel meint, K455. Beethoven: Piano Sonata No 1. Mozart: Piano Sonata No 5.

Clemency Burton-Hill presents Mozart Plus, with music performed by the pianist Federico Colli, recorded at St Mary's Church, Hay-on-Wye, during the 2017 Hay Festival. Included in the concert is Mozart's ten variations on Gluck's popular aria 'Unser dummer Pöbel meint', from the opera 'La rencontre imprévue'. This is followed by an early piano sonata by Beethoven, dedicated to Haydn and called by some his 'little Appassionata'. The concert finishes with a return to Mozart and an early sonata from 1775. Some of his early sonatas demonstrate the influence of Haydn, and yet this work reveals a kinship to Johann Christian Bach.
