David Violi is a French pianist, born in Italy. He won a great number of international piano competitions such as the Yamaha Conservatory Competition. During this recital at the Palazzetto Bru Zane he plays two works inspired by Faust, a great opera by Charles Gounod. These two works are Krüger - Dramatic Fantasy on Faust op. 134 and Liszt - Valse de Faust de Gounod. Not only are these works inspired by Gounod, but they also contain his musical materials. The dramatic problems of Faust, who wants to sell his soul to the devil, are very well represented in these two pieces.
