Vincenzo Maltempo

Composed by: Alkan, Charles-Valentin

Vincenzo Maltempo continues to establish himself not only as an Alkan champion with his fifth Alkan CD but also as a pianist of extraordinary power, sensitivity and intellect.This recital presents some of the composer’s quirky and eccentric works, not necessarily of epic proportions but rather on a small scale, concentrating manically on a single idea, creating a hallucinatory and mesmerizing effect (or simply hilarious...).Maltempo’s previous Alkan Piano Classics recordings received rave reviews in the international press, including 5-star reviews in Diapason and Piano News.
