Il Resto del Carlino (Italy), 3.2.1993
CONCERT REVIEW

"...Massimiliano Ferrati, a highly gifted young pianist: extraordinarily musical, well-balanced in the interpretation of the text...His Mozart is so pleasant to listen to, fluid and extremely clear in expressing the musical content...When he plays Chopin...he achieves exceptional effects..."
Sergio Garbato. 
 

Corriere della Sera (Italy), 4.5.1993
CONCERT REVIEW

 "...a recital in memory of Magaloff...by a promising new young pianist: Massimiliano Ferrati won the hearts of the audience and made his way as a concert performer. He displays a wealth of vigorous resources and a penetrating understanding of the logic of the text. Filled with fervour, he "speaks the language" of the composers with enthusiasm of ideas, phrasing, questions. In his interpretation of Mozart...the image evolves moment by moment in a range of effective answers. In Chopin...his highly refined sound turns to magic, the breath being held momentarily...the vigour, the exaltation...His Chopin is authoritative, applauded even in the three encores."
Franca Cella.

Ma 'ariv (Israel), 29.3.2001
CONCERT REVIEW

"The Italian, Massimiliano Ferrati, is a bright, glowing expressionist. In Mozart he produced pearls; in Chopin he was spiritual; he sang; he was romantic, highly polished. And in Mussorgskij ("Pictures"), he blew up the auditorium. Images of an erupting volcano. He may have shown some affectations, but he was great, immense, original, compelling." 
Ora Binur

Ma 'ariv (Israel), 04.2.2001
CONCERT REVIEW

"When, Massimiliano Ferrati, the Italian, began playing the slow movement in Concerto no.3 by Beethoven, he was a poet in describing a legend in sound. He speaks and sings in sound, like the legendary Michelangeli." 
Ora Binur
 

Yedioth Ahronoth (Israel), 02.4.2001
CONCERT REVIEW

"The Italian, Massimiliano Ferrati, played Beethoven's Piano Concerto no.3 excellently. The Italian has come out of the oven evenly baked all over. He played Beethoven in the traditional manner, giving it the correct dose of romantic sauce." 
Hanoch Ron
 

Yedioth Ahronoth (Israel), 04.4.2001

"There is no doubt that Ferrati is a superior pianist who has the spark of an artist."
