Roberto Plano - Pianist  
   
 
  • “Roberto Plano is clearly a serious and thoughtful musician…[He] exerted a real personality... His aristocratic playing in the Dvorák made every phrase matter.”

    Dallas Morning News
  • ... he's sensational. ...lyricism at its most pleasing...

    The Edmonton Journal
  • Roberto Plano is on Maurizio Pollini’s and Uto Ughi’s footsteps..

    Il Tempo
  • A wave of enthusiasm in Plano’s Liszt… Public in delirium at the end of the recital ..

    Il Giornale di Brescia
  • Hands resources ready for anything, natural fluency passages, full-domain sound, lyricism and virtuosity ..

    Il Giornale di Sicilia
  • There are indeed a number of excellent pianists on an equally high level. But hardly has one felt there could be no higher level, along comes someone like Roberto Plano and proves there is. With on the one hand highly charged, on the other hand deeply sensitive interpretations he delighted and overwhelmed the audience ..

    Südkurier
  • Many artists are brilliant technicians but somewhat lacking in expressiveness or vice versa. Rarely is one successful, as Plano is, in combining both in a flawless unity, to be technically brilliant on the one hand and at the same time to let profound emotions speak

    Südkurier
  • Completely one with the music and without cheap showmanship Plano achieves a result of seductive effect. At times he revels in majestic chords, then in sensuous arpeggios or plunging cascades. His playing has an elegant effect and yet it is filled with passionate power and intensity

    Südkurier
  • Plano fascinates with sculpted staccato as precise as a metronome. His runs, accurate and gently pearling or murmuring like a spring, are a dream.

    Südkurier
  • How is it possible, in a fraction of a second, after hushed tones, soft as silk and dabbed in with celestial weightlessness, to change to a stormy, unleashed earthy force!

    Südkurier
  • In his homeland the Italian pianist is a star. With such outstanding presentations as the one in Kiesel, it cannot be long until he begins his triumphal procession through the concert houses of Germany.

    Südkurier
  • I was personally acquainted with most of the great ones, including Serkin, Rubinstein and Horowitz, but I waited decades for the next keyboard giant to arrive. Then one evening I heard Mr. Plano in recital ..

    Paul Harvey jr.
  • As no other pianist now concertizing, he combines an almost supernatural range of sound and color with phenomenal musicianship, technique, and charisma.

    Paul Harvey jr.
