Alessandro Marangoni - Piano Concert - FREE EVENT
Fri 16 June 2017, 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM HKT
Alessandro Marangoni burst onto the international stage in 2007 when he won the prestigious “Amici di Milano” International Prize for the Music. In the same year he played at Teatro alla Scala in Milan, as pianist soloist during a tribute to the great Italian conductor Victor de Sabata, with Daniel Barenboim. In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of de Sabata’s death, he recorded a CD of his piano works on the La Bottega Discantica label. Soon after he was signed as an international recording artist with NAXOS and his growing discography has received international critical acclaim for his interpretation and technique.
Alessandro has appeared in major musical events in Europe and America, both as a soloist and as a chamber musician. His most recent activity includes performances in Rome (Accademia di Santa Cecilia and the Quirinale), Milan (Teatro alla Scala and Teatro del Verme), Venice (Teatro La Fenice), Florence (Accademia della Crusca), Lucca (Associazione Musicale Lucchese), Ischia (the Walton Foundation), Trieste (Teatro Verdi), Pesaro (Rossini Opera Festival), the Festival MITO and the Sagra Musicale Umbra, as well as concerts in Great Britain, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France, Sweden, Finland, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, China, USA and Canada.
He had notable collaborations with the Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra and the Granada Philharmonic in Spain, and with the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra in Bratislava, all conducted by the Italian conductor Aldo Ceccato. He also performed with the European Philharmonic and the Mozarteum Kammerorchester.
As a renowned advocate of Italian music, he has recorded more than 20 CDs: Rossini (Pechès de vieillesse, 16 cds), Clementi’s Gradus ad Parnassum (4 cds) and Castelnuovo-Tedesco Piano Concertos with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra (conducted by Andrew Mogrelia), as well as Liszt's Via Crucis (Ars Cantica Choir, conducted by Marco Berrini), all on the Naxos label.
As a chamber musician he has collaborated with some of the most important Italian musical personalities and groups, including Mario Ancillotti, Aldo Ceccato, Marco Berrini, Vittorio Ceccanti, Maddalena Crippa, Enrico Dindo, Francesco Manara, Daria Masiero, Stefano Parrino, Paola Pitagora, Quirino Principe, Milena Vukotic, Carlo Zardo, il Quartetto di Fiesole and the Nuovo Quartetto Italiano.
His energy and interest in new music and new technologies and his pioneering spirit have led him to uncover a lost Castelnuovo-Tedesco concerto, to perform in avatar form in cyberspace for international audiences of computer gamers, to form artistic partnerships with artists from other disciplines (recently actress Valentina Cortese) and to launch a new project Chromoconcerto® with Pierpaolo Venier.
Alessandro Marangoni is the artistic director of “Forte? Fortissimo! TV”, a new Music Web Channel created with Stefano Sgarella.
