Step into a world of sublime musical mastery as renowned classical concert pianist Antonio Pompa-Baldi takes center stage to kick off an unforgettable three-day piano intensive event. Prepare to be mesmerized by a repertoire that traverses the realms of passionate romanticism and contemporary brilliance. Pompa-Baldi will ignite the evening with Rachmaninoff's spellbinding Variations on a Theme of Corelli, Op. 42, infusing the music with his unique artistry and profound emotional depth. The journey continues with Chopin's Polonaise-Fantasy, Op. 61, a virtuosic exploration of Polish heritage and poetic introspection. Following an intermission that leaves audiences longing for more, Pompa-Baldi unveils a captivating world premiere by contemporary composer Roberto Piana. "Glances on the Divine Comedy" transports us to the vivid landscapes of Dante's Inferno, its nine movements delving into the realms of myth, desire, and celestial turmoil. The evening reaches its climax with Liszt's Fantasia quasi Sonata après une lecture du Dante, a monumental masterpiece inspired by the depths and heights of Dante's epic poem. Immerse yourself in a night of musical brilliance, as Antonio Pompa-Baldi's evocative interpretations and technical prowess captivate and transport you to new realms of musical ecstasy. Join us for this extraordinary concert experience that promises to leave an indelible mark on your soul.
