Carlo Grante: Masters of High Romanticism II

Carlo Grante, Piano “Masters Of High Romanticism” Concert II – Schumann: The Piano Sonatas The second in a three-concert series, “Masters of High Romanticism,” with each program devoted to a single Romantic-era composer. In this concert, Carlo Grante focuses on “Schumann’s unique contribution to the evolution of sonata-form, expanding it into a journey of heroic proportions.” The final concert will feature the complete solo piano variations of Brahms (Tuesday, February 10, 2015). “Carlo Grante is one of the most astonishing artists I have ever known and worked with,” says Fabio Luisi, Principal Conductor of the Metropolitan Opera and General Music Director of the Zurich Opera. “His artistry is permeated with the deepest knowledge in many fields, not just the arts. Interesting for me as a musician and conductor is the way he approaches a musical work: considering it as expression of time, environment, and the composer’s own personal, social and cultural experience. With Carlo’s fantastic technical and analytical skills, the music comes alive in a way which sounds new, sometimes unexpected, but always both logical and natural.” Carlo Grante is one of the most active pianists performing and recording today. His concert repertoire is one of the largest among contemporary pianists; it includes masterpieces by core composers as well as important works by lesser-known composers. His discography runs to more than fifty CDs and ranges from Domenico Scarlatti (the complete sonatas, a 40-CD project under the auspices of Bösendorfer and Badura-Skoda in Vienna), to Platti, Clementi, Liszt and Schumann, to twentieth-century composers such as Busoni, Sorabji and Godowsky (whose complete works he is recording). In 1995 Carlo Grante gave the world premiere of 53 Studies on the Études of Chopin by Godowsky at the Newport Festival. Carlo Grante is one of Europe’s foremost concert artists, having performed in such major venues and prestigious halls as the Grosser Saal of the Konzerthaus and the Goldener Saal of the Musikverein in Vienna; Wigmore Hall and Barbican Hall in London; the Sala Santa Cecilia in Rome; Leipzig Gewandhaus; and in New York, Chicago, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Hanoi, Zagreb, Bucharest, Lima and Rio de Janeiro. In May, 2014, he made his Washington, D.C. debut at the Terrace Theater of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. He has performed at the festivals of Vienna, Istanbul, Newport, Miami, and Ravello. He has appeared as soloist with major orchestras including the Dresden Staatskapelle, Royal Philharmonic in London, Vienna Symphony, Orchestra of St. Cecilia, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, and Concertino Wien. Carlo Grante graduated from the Conservatory S. Cecilia in Rome, studying with Sergio Perticaroli, after which he studied in the U.S. with Ivan Davis at the University of Miami and at The Juilliard School in New York with Rudolf Firkušný; he then studied intensively in London with Alice Kezeradze-Pogorelich. A Bösendorfer artist, Carlo Grante is also a widely-published writer on the piano literature. He lives in Rome.
