Bruce Xiaoyu Liu won 1st Prize at the 18th Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw on a FAZIOLI 278. Martin Garcia Garcia was awarded the prize for the best Concert Performance which he performed on a FAZIOLI 278 for which he received 3rd Prize. Ms. Lenora Armellini who placed 5th became a crowd favorite also chose a FAZIOLI for her performances.
Why is FAZIOLI preferred by the winners of the Chopin competition? Because it is the best pianistic tool for artistic expression at the highest level and allows artists to give life to their music in nuanced ways not previously possible.
The FAZIOLI 278 enabled Bruce Liu’s qualities to shine. Bruce’s special gift is an incredible sense of focus combined with the ability to sculpt music with great inner subtlety. According to Prof. Richard Raymond from the Montreal Conservatoire, Bruce has powerful stamina, supported by one of the most perfect piano techniques on Earth. This requires a piano that supports such talent and skill and has the tonal sensitivity and depth, along with majestic power. That is why the winning and best performers in the competition opted for the FAZIOLI.
Mr. Paolo Fazioli, who hand-builds FAZIOLI pianos with his team of artisans said he felt humbled and grateful that the artists did so well and commended the notable pianistic level of all performers.
