Massimo Folliero

Humble man, down to earth person and a world class performer. It was one of the best piano concert performed in India. Massimo covered music of Beethoven, Chopin, Brahms and the music truly came alive. For many in the audience it was the first time experiencing a proper classical piano concert. The response was very positive and well appreciated. When asked, how he was able to commit one hour of music to memory, he responded modestly by saying “Get into the shoes of the composer and get into the music and bring out the music”.
