Radio progran with France Musique on 22nd December 2015 (with the Silbermann piano)

Süddeutsche Zeitung from 28th September 2015, edition Fürstenfeldbruck

“Enthusiasm for the clear tone - inauguration concert for the reconstruction of a Cristofori piano The listener heard right from the beginning an extremely reliable and appealing tone which was not too loud, so it filled wonderfully the intimate setting of chamber hall. … Giovanni Benedetto Platti was an Italian musician who lived and worked a long time of his life in Würzburg. One of his Sonatas for Cello and basso continuo, played by Reinhold J. Buhl und Christoph Hammer was part of the program. The cellist avoided any hardness in the bowing, played with a sensitive tone and little vibrato, and connected nicely with the piano. Most convincing where the passages where both instruments were interacting closely. At the end there was a lot of applause. However, the biggest part of the applause may have been for the new fortepiano, which the audience had absolutely loved."

CD review on Saturday 22 March 2014, Alte-Musik-Forum, CD "Bach & The Early Pianoforte, Luca Guglielmi, Piano Classics

“Most of the pieces Guglielim plays on a Silbermann copy made by Kerstin Schwarz who is probably making the best copies of those early pianos. The dynamics are astonishing, the quality of sound unique and much more contoured then on a modern piano where the colours seem boring and flat in comparison... This CD shows once again that it is important to look for new perspectives without prejudice on the supposedly well-known repertoire… For every lover of Bach's keyboard music, on whatever instrument, highly recommended."
