JURY


“I just loved Ilaria Loatelli’s playing, she created such wonderful variety of sound and color and her rhythmic energy, expression and tone, was simply wonderful. Her playing was always very moving and heartfelt. She is truly one of the very best young artists that I have heard in recent years.” 
Catherine Rollin, composer, Carnegie Hall

“Ilaria has found a natural touch, a touch that indicates that the greatest need not be concerned about technical hurdles. She executes the daunting Prokofiev’s Toccata, staccata (and beautifully held) at a tempo that only Argerich can allow.”
