Alessio Bax, piano
Spivey Hall Debut
Season Opening Celebration
Winner of the prestigious 2000 Leeds Competition, Italian pianist Alessio Bax unleashes "a dazzling virtuosity where called for, but more impressive is his way of shaping the music, warmly caressing phrases" (Dallas Morning News).
"Everything in his program unfolded with an ease, precision and beauty so seemingly effortless that the music appeared to live and breathe of its own volition" (The New York Times).
