Nicolò Cafaro : Talents at Bologna Festival
About the Event
In this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the mellifluous sounds of classical music at Bologna's atmospheric Chiostro della Basilica di Santo Stefano.
The name of Nicolò Cafaro emerges from the darkness four years ago, in 2019, when the Sicilian pianist, just nineteen, wins the sixth prize at the Busoni Competition in Bolzano. In reality Nicolò has been performing in public since the age of twelve and before Bolzano he had already established himself in at least four other international competitions. In November 2022, however, the most important milestone: the victory at the 'Venice Prize'. A career on the rise, therefore, which is reflected in the program — mature and ambitious — chosen for this concert: two Nocturnes and Chopin's Fantasia in F minor framed by three Sonatas by Scarlatti and the complete version of Schumann's symphonic studies.
