Rapport with audience
"With a charming smile Enrico Elisi spontaneously conquered the hearts of the audience. But with his playing he pulled the listeners into his spell where he moved and captured them unequivocally. There was no tone or sound that one could let pass. It was a constant development, a musical wellspring of flexible tone painting molded and developing one after another."

Elisi's intepretation of Mozart
"Enrico Elisi opened the concert series, il pianoforte all'italiana of the Italian Institute of Culture, Wolfsburg, with a large and demanding program: first we heard Bach's Partita No. 6 BWV 830 and Mozart's Sonata in F Major KV 332, Elisi fluidly expressed a wide variety of dynamics in the various themes and played the melodic ideas without ever neglecting the underlying counter-themes. Improvised ornaments, runs and leaps were always tied into the melodic flow resulting in an iridescent and richly varied work of art.
Elisi developed Mozart's sonata as a dramatic scene that moved from one emotional level to another. Pamina could be heard languishing; Osmin clattering in his garden; one could imagine Papageno jumping but just as quickly the scene changed to the stony guest threatening a laughing Don Giovanni. The pianist who was evidently in the middle of this drama presented the audience with such great listening pleasure."
