Dr. Mark Malkovich III wrote of Sergio Fiorentino: "Sergio Fiorentino was one of the greatest pianists I have ever heard. I realize that this is a big statement, especially since my listening and loving pianists over a period of over half a century. I heard Backhaus, Cherkassky, Kapell, Landowska, Moiseiwitsch, Schnabel and Solomon. I knew Horowitz personally. And I introduced to America in their debut recitals such pianistic luminaries as Bella Davidovich, Andrei Gavrilov, Jean Philippe Collard, Mikhail Pletnev, Igor Zhukov, Ekaterina Novitskaya, Maria Joao Pires, Andrea Lucchesini and more than twenty others. I returned to America after absences of many decades such artist as Maria Tipo, Magda Tagliaferro, Dubravka Tomsi, Vlado Perlemuter and Dame Moura Lympany. But it was Sergio Fiorentino's return after forty odd years of first playing in New York City that brought me the greatest satisfaction and moved me deeply... Sergio was immediately loved by Newport and New York audiences. Critics from Boston and New York wrote that his was a throwback to the golden age of Lhevinne, Godowsky and Rachmaninoff himself. Sergio was generous with his time, his artistry and his concern for others... He was an impresario's dream: always playing like a god with no hidden agenda of personal difficulties... " The present release features 9 albums of live recordings made between 1996 and 1998.
