Christian Leotta on the piano - Recital IIIfrom 13 Jan 2020 to 13 Jan 2020
Piano Sonatas by Franz SchubertTheatre Cinema Music
A rare opportunity offered by the pianist Christian Leotta, who in four evenings will give a full performance of the 11 “completed” Piano Sonatas by Franz Schubert at the Teatro Sociale of Como, two hundred years after their composition.
A rarity especially because – due to their complexity and the, not only technical, commitment that they require – Schubert’s Sonatas are not often addressed by pianists as a complete corpus, and their performance is almost always reserved to a limited number of them.
After all, Leotta is not new to exceptional musical endeavours, having performed the complete cycle of the 32 Beethoven Sonatas twenty-one times around the world.
With the Schubertian cycle scheduled at the Teatro Sociale of Como, Leotta will also become the first Italian pianist to have a repertoire of and to perform both the cycle of Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas and that of Schubert’s Piano Sonatas in concert.
The programme of each of the four concerts offered by Christian Leotta at the Teatro Sociale of Como will include Piano Sonatas by Franz Schubert composed both in the years of his youth and full maturity, with the aim of giving the public an image as complete as possible of the composer, in each of the four scheduled recitals.
Christian Leotta’s musical project will also have an aspect of solidarity: the proceeds from the tickets sold for the third concert (the one on the 9th December) will in fact be donated to the Comocuore Onlus Association.
The musical event has been realised with the collaboration and the contribution of the Department of Culture of the Municipality of Como and in collaboration with the Teatro Sociale of Como As.Li.Co.
