Product Overview

Prosseda is a musicologist as well as a renowned pianist. For his Decca Records debut, he presents a program of previously unrecorded piano pieces by Felix Mendelsohn Bartholdy. He premiered these pieces at a concert in Milan in December 2004. Many of these pieces are quiet compositions, but Prosseda contends that the music reveals a more tortured soul lurking between the measures. Prosseda's playing concentrates on the true nature and intricasies of the music that reveals further depths of Mendelssohn's personality that is not immediately evident in his other better known works. Collectively, these pieces offer a fascinating perspective of the man that while shunned in generations following his death has been rediscovered and studied intently after the fall of the Berlin Wall as a bridge the classic-romantic divide, evoking visual stimuli with his music previously unnoticed.
