The 29-year-old Leonora Armellini’s experience and poise extends to her platform manner, not to mention her complete command of the Fazioli’s responsive action. The piano seems to be a natural extension of her body.
Leonora Armellini led listeners into the realm of Chopinian sound and form.
I have always written as much as possible of her qualities
“I had the courage to get involved, the only way to grow”. A girl with clear ideas.
Leonora performs in all international theaters and festivals for her unique approach to the piano that leaves anyone who has the privilege of listening to her enchanted. Winner of numerous competitions, she is an expert in the Chopinian repertoire and a fine performer of the music of Poulenc and Liszt.
Leonora Armellini (…) never renounces the communicativeness of color, not even when she has to throw herself into impressive double octave passages, furious scales, endless trills; she does not look for shortcuts on the path of virtuosity, she follows it all the way with precision without ever losing control, making agility and strength a true expressive quality.
Leonora inflamed the audience with her simplicity as a girl able to master, without flaws, an “indomitable” instrument. (...) From Leonora Armellini the technical soul emerges without veils, which blends harmoniously with a romanticism of rare beauty
