Rosa Antonelli, Rosa_at_carnegie.jpgone of Argentina's leading pianists, is especially celebrated for her performances of the classical piano music of Latin America. Antonelli knew Piazzolla and many others of these composers personally, and she plays this repertory with deep love and a very special warmth and understanding.

When 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."

Rosa_CD.jpgThis special invitation-only concert for Harvardwood members and friends celebrates the release of Antonelli's most recent CD, "Abrazando: Latin Embrace".  The American Record Guide review of this CD said "Antonelli's phrasing and voicing are magical", and Fanfare wrote, "The sultry mixture of romance, menace, and mystery is hard to resist."

In this concert, Rosa Antonelli will perform music by Piazzolla and Ginastera, as well as favorites from her new recording.

A reception with wine will follow the performance.
