Roberto Prosseda is one of the most important Italian pianists of his generation. His dedication to the piano music of Felix Mendelssohn, including recording the Piano Concerto No. 3 with the Gewandhaus Orchestra and Riccardo Chailly, have won much acclaim in the press. In 2014 Prosseda completed his 10-year project of recording all Mendelssohn’s piano works for Decca on 9 CDs. In 2010, Deutsche Grammophon selected twelve recordings by Prosseda to add to the box set, “Classic Gold”. Roberto Prosseda has performed regularly with some of the world’s most important orchestras and conductors. He has now embarked on a project to record all the Mozart piano sonatas and also to revive the pedal piano which was popular in the time of Gounod, Liszt and Alkan.
