    You don’t expect an oboe and clarinet to team up with a piano for an entire concert. But they did Friday, when I Solisti Della Scala Trio performed at the Italian Embassy in an evening of breathtaking artistry. To celebrate the re-opening of Milan’s La Scala, oboist Francesco Di Rosa, clarinetist Fabrizio Meloni and pianist Nazzareno…

    A pianist in the kingdom of freedom. Far from paradigms of equilibrium and measure, Carusi has exhibited a highly unprecedented piano tract, with explosions and extreme freedom of time and regularity. And the most incredible thing was that this sort of exoticism worked wonderfully well. With an impeccable technique and a clear typing to the last detail,…

    For years I wanted a pianist who “sang” at the keyboard as Nazzareno Carusi does. The great pianist Alexis Weissenberg judged his “cantabile” among the most beautiful that he had ever heard. Carusi sings with the piano. I do not feel accompanied by him, but I duet with him, as if he were another voice. It is a…

    It was an hour of pure beauty that the soprano Eleonora Buratto and the pianist Nazzareno Carusi offered to the audience of the Teatro Ristori. Carusi opened the concert with the “Fantasia in D minor K 397”, highlighting, through a shrewd use of colors, that melancholic vein that pervades it and that already seems to be…

    Nazzareno Carusi and Vittorio Sgarbi in “Discorso a Due”. The pianist from Abruzzo and the art Critic are two of the most great figures of the whole Italian Culture. The jewel of the recital is the melologue invented by the pianist on Dante. Here, Carusi immerses himself in an overwhelming execution for sound images and feelings made…

    Finally the Sonata op. 109 of Beethoven. Carusi [plays her] with very solemn and synthetic sweetness: and in this we can see that he comes from the Russian school, since in his interpretation you heard Gilels and Richter who were behind him guardian angels.

  • New York Concert Review Inc.
    I especially liked the way pianist Carusi (playing with the lid up) managed to unabashedly project huge sonorous masses of piano tone (in the manner of the Tchaikovsky B-flat minor Piano Concerto and Busoni op. 39!) without ever swamping the clarinet and oboe players. They indeed sound like “Soloists” in the best sense of that word….
