In this special concert, the celebrated Argentine pianist Rosa Antonelli will perform piano music by Spanish and Latin American composers, including Ginastera and Piazzolla. Antonelli knew Piazzolla and others of these composers personally, and was entrusted with the world premiere performances of several of Piazzolla’s tangos for piano. She plays this repertory with deep love and a very special warmth and understanding.

Rosa_at_carnegie.jpgWhen she gave the first of her two solo recitals in Carnegie Hall's main Stern Auditorium, Joe Franklin wrote, "On October 15 in Carnegie Hall, a star was born.  Her name is Rosa Antonelli."  And the legendary critic Harris Goldsmith wrote of her playing, "She is a dyed-in-the-wool Romantic Lyricist.  Her always aurally beautiful and caressing pianism uses a lot of color via the sustaining pedal; she molds phrases with enormous flexibility, and there was never a hint of harsh, ugly or astringent glint to her lush singing tone . . . Antonelli's inward poetry forced me to rehear, and revalue, Piazzolla's Tangos, which she infused with an eloquence and inner communication."  When her most recent CD, BRIDGES, was released, Jacqueline Kharouf wrote in her review in Fanfare, "I will listen to this album for many years, and always with a sense of deep gratitude and admiration."

This will be a rare opportunity to hear Rosa Antonelli perform in an intimate 45-seat setting.

If NYC Covid numbers are low enough, a reception with wine will follow the performance.  [Update:  As of right now, a reception does not seem possible, alas.]

You must wear a mask and be fully vaccinated against Covid to attend.

Advance registration is REQUIRED.  No tickets will be sold at the door.
