“I am very excited to hear such a fabulous pianist and musician. Thanks for your Music!” -Martha Argerich, 2013
“The young Leonardo Colafelice that I heard tonight impressed me for his qualities as a virtuoso of the keyboard. At only 12 years old he is able to deal dangerous reputed technical difficulties with a confounding simplicity. It goes without saying that an element such as Leonardo Colafelice is a born pianist and destined to a brilliant career.” -Aldo Ciccolini, 2008
