Recital in Verona, Italy – January 2008
A terrific violinist in “Tzigane”
Bendix-Balgley and Gianello in a most elegant recital
The title of the concert “Rising Stars”, described very well the twenty-three year old recent winner of the International Competition “Andrea Postacchini” in Fermo…Extremely elegant in his phrasing, Bendix-Balgley expressed a violinistic style reminiscent of Pierre Amoyal, which has in the cantability of legato its highest merit. The Beethoven rendition was truly interesting: exquisitely refined, and with a very strong interpretation of the three movements…At the conclusion there was lengthy and friendly applause.
