On FAZIOLI F308 with four pedals: “his gifts for colour, nuance and tasteful dynamic contrasts…sexily shaped trills…the point and precision of his détaché articulation…discreet use of agogics and his mastery of the kind of overlapping finger legato…attention to detail and clear commitment unquestionably come across, abetted by fine engineering.
