Internationally acclaimed Italian pianist Roberto Prosseda is touring Australia and will present in Canberra a program of music by Franz Liszt, Giuseppe Verdi and Roffredo Caetani.
"Prosseda shapes the music in long, elegant phrases that soar and compel utterly... This is the finest set of Menelssohn's Songs Without Words now available." Classic FM magazine, 5 STAR DC review, Jan '09
Roberto Prosseda's sensational discovery of new Mendelssohn works made headlines in Europe and lead to three Decca releases. His albums have won musch acclaim in the press, including the CHOC from Le Monde de la Musique Classique, the Diapason d'Or and Chamber Music CD of the Month in the UK's Classic FM magazine. Cristics and public alike have come to recognise Prosseda's interpretations as communicating a deep emotion and introspection, capable of moving the listener, thanks also to a particular use of rubato and a great variety of timbres, particularly in Prosseda's use of pianissimo.
