Highly acclaimed by the critics, Roberto Paruzzo receives words of praise in important publications:
” … Paruzzo showed extraordinary interpretative skills, all supported by a sound which is the epiphany of an uncommon musical sensitiveness. Every phrase, every detail, every passage even when linguistically more related to piano technique, under the fingers of Paruzzo unveal the secret of their poetic inspiration … “
” … The agreement with Mr. Wildner assured an optimal communication with the orchestra; the piano should neither impose itself nor become subordinate, finding always the equilibrium of a correct conversation, yet not leaving any doubt about its leading role. This charge was fulfilled with great ease by Mr. Paruzzo, who created an appreciation of the beauty of the sound in a dimension of detached contemplation … “
