Alessio Bax thrills Dallas Chamber Symphony audience at City Performance Hall
Critical acclaim abounds for Alessio Bax in Recital, after his performance in the second event of Dallas Chamber Symphony’s 2012-13 season. Bax performed works by Brahms, Rachmaninoff, and Ravel at the newly opened Dallas City Performance Hall.
Scott Cantrell of the Dallas Morning News writes, “I can’t remember when I’ve heard a piano recital as wholly satisfying as the one performed Tuesday night by Alessio Bax. Now “only” in his mid-30s, the Italian-born, longtime U.S.-resident pianist, an alumnus of Southern Methodist University and adjunct faculty member there, played with the depth and understanding of a grand master.”
Cantrell adds Bax was “wholly in command”, and that his performance of La valse, “captured the whole collage of mystery, hallucinatory strangeness, whimsy, imperial elegance and the demonic explosions at the end.”

Gregory Issacs of Theater Jones says, “His playing was sheer magic and musical gold form [sic] the opening Brahms to the final Ravel.”
