Since then, he has been performing in prestigious concerts in different parts of the world. “There’s no doubt that Federico Colli is one of the more original thinkers of his generation.” (Gramophone)He has played at famous Theaters including the Musikverein and Konzerthaus in Vienna, Berlin Konzerthaus, Munich Herkulessaal, Hamburg Laeiszhalle, Bonn Beethovenhalle, Hannover NDR Landesfunkhaus, Amsterdam Royal Concertgebouw, Barbican Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall and Cadogan Hall in London, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Edinburgh Usher Hall, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, Dublin National Concert Hall, Prague Rudolfinum Dvorak Hall, Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, Auditorium Lingotto and Auditorium Toscanini in Turin, Teatro degli Arcimboldi and Teatro Dal Verme in Milan, Warsaw Philharmonic Concert Hall, Cidade Das Artes and Theatro Municipal in Rio de Janeiro, Nikkei Hall, Musashino Cultural Hall and Bunka Kaikan Hall in Tokyo, Hong Kong City Hall Concert Hall, Sala Nezahualcoyotl in Mexico City, Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Teatro Sociedad Filarmonica in Bilbao, Teatro Filarmonico in Verona, Teatro Grande in Brescia, Teatro Donizetti in Bergamo, Kiev Lysenko Hall, Teatro Verdi in Florence, Leeds Town Hall,  Lucerne Lukaskirche, Salle Cortot in Paris, Lincoln Centre in New York and Bennet Gordon Hall in Chicago for the Ravinia Festival.
