Friday, September 17 (9 pm) the Ebe Stignani Theater hosts Roberto Cominati, praised by La Repubblica for “the impeccable and mimetic stylistic pianism”, for an evening dedicated to a baroque repertoire reinterpreted, in which melodic insights and poignant themes are brought to light.
Opening the refined program proposed by Cominati the Chaconne in G major HWV 435 by Handel reported in vogue by pianist Angela Hewitt. Other famous transcriptions of the Baroque composer still stationed in London follow. The evening ends with the Sonata in B minor for piano op. 58 of Chopin, four movements that over time have earned international acclaim, in which sprout melodies full of the lyricism peculiar to the Polish composer.
On stage Roberto Cominati, often called “the pianist with wings”, Neapolitan, born in 1969, a former student of Aldo Ciccolini, great talent that combines the passion for the piano, since childhood, with that for flight. He performs as a soloist for some of the most prestigious concert institutions on the national and international scene, including Teatro alla Scala, Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Salzburg Festival, Theatre du Chatelet in Paris, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and Konzerthaus in Berlin, to name a few. Among the famous batons with which he collaborated, Daniele Gatti, Simon Rattle and Daniel Harding.
