Francisco Silva

Complete Beethoven Piano Sonata Cycle

“…First, the best. Sunday afternoon at the Woodruff’s intimate Rich Auditorium, Francisco Silva, a Brazilian-born pianist living in Marietta, launched a complete cycle of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas…then came the payoff. In the opening of the Pathetique Sonata Silva told a terrifying tale, full of rage and sorrow and fresh ideas – in short, a thoughtful musician at work. … When he strikes, as he did a great many times on Sunday, the effect is thrilling. His music-making is of the sort that builds a loyal following.”

– Pierre Ruhe, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, 2001

“…In the past, we had performances of the complete cycle of the 32 Beethoven Sonatas [in Brazil] by great national and foreign artists. In recent times, nothing has been equaled to the extraordinary performance of this cycle by Francisco Silva. Let us mention the authority of this presentation: the interpretive perfection, and complete empathy with the works; everything that could compare him with a Master…the refinement and integrity of a true artist’s soul.”

Carlos Gonzales, O Diário Popular

“…from the beginning I was impressed with the seriousness of his approach, his interpretive concentration, the incredible control of the fearful agogic difficulties, the beautiful sonority he has in the slow movements, his spontaneity and the level of communication this is established between artist and public… He can already be proclaimed a great virtuoso pianist…” O Estado de São Paulo
