Fabio Romano, Pianist
Press review

'Fabio Romano, an outstanding pianist, [is] able to shift between muffled pianissimos and the most thundering of clusters with unbroken continuity.'

Berliner Morgenpost
23 Aug 1999

'Fabio Romano creates such very sensitively fervid sounds out of his instrument, as though he is witnessing that wonder for the very first time himself. Considering his brilliant technique, it is amazing how far he stays alien to any form of routine. '.

Sueddeutsche Zeitung
13 Dec 2000

'The audience have enthusiastically attended the performance of the young Italian pianist Fabio Romano, who also world-premiered a short piano piece by Wagner.'

Berliner Morgenpost
11 Sept 2000

'A young pianist, endowed with a very refined taste and a brilliant technique'.

Reutlinger Generalanzeiger
30 May 1998

'Self-assured about his refined taste, Fabio Romano knows how to afford those artistic licences that transform a piano’s voice into a poetry'.

Reutlingen Nachrichten
30 May 1998

'Ingenious interpreting talents. The duo Romano-Varema excites enthusiasm in Kreuth [...] The way up to the summits of their performing career is just unfolding'.

Muenchner Merkur
3 Aug 1994

'His natural technique, teamed up with his familiarity to jazz, raises this Rhapsody to the levels of a genuinely American event. A brilliant performance'.

Heilbronner Stimme
20 Oct 1998

'Fabio Romano has been the exquisite soloist of this concert [...] On top of his technical ability, he reveals his refined sensitivity to dynamic variations and ability to create transparent sounds and enact powerful crescendos, which remain fluent and expressive without falling short of their fair amount of incisiveness'.

Main Echo
16 Nov 1999

'The soloist Fabio Romano lets the music live and breathe, and he does so with great transparency [...] poeticality and, at the same and one time, objectivity'.

Deggendorfer Zeitung
26 Sept 2000

'Fabio Romano plays the piano part with richness of colours and rhythmic pithiness'.

Lindauer Zeitung
20 Apr 2000

'An innermost reflection, deep-rooted down in the own self and the secret emotional travails of it, almost a defence of the musical monologue: such is the interpretation of the Op. 110 in A flat major [Beethoven’s] as elegantly performed by F. Romano'.

Giornale di Sicilia
19 Nov 1985

'Fabio Romano – whose litheness and virtuosity supported by technical cleanness and unaffected musicality are striking – performed Chopin’s tricky Op. 58 in B minor, a favourite piece of illustrious pianists indeed. Not in the slightest afraid of the many difficulties hidden in the score, he rendered a concentrated and passionate interpretation by alternating extended oases of graceful cantabiles and passages of excruciated yet flawless lyricism. On playing a scherzo, he indulged a unique and so amiably youthful realisation of style'.

Giornale di Sicilia
29 Nov 1985

'Excellent music from Sicily. A hearty ovation for the duo Luigi Sollima - Fabio Romano at the S. Bartolomeo venue'.
