Schubert: Piano Sonatas / Carbonara
Label: Piano Classics
Michelangelo Carbonara (piano)
Composed by: SCHUBERT
Michelangelo Carbonara is one of the most interesting and talented young Italian pianists. A student of the famous Imola Piano School he benefited from the advice of such luminaries as Dmitri Bashkirov, Leon Fleischer, Alicia de Larrocha, Menahem Pressler and Aldo Ciccolini. His recordings of piano music by Ravel, Scarlatti and Nino Rota brought him great critical acclaim in the international press. This disc for Piano Classics presents him in music very close to his heart, the piano sonatas by Franz Schubert (he is prize winner of the Schubert International Piano Competition in Dortmund), from the early joyful sonata in E major, through the lyrical A major D664 to the grim A minor sonata D845.
