Lamb Rosa Antonelli will give a piano recital for all to enjoy, featuring our new Steinway piano, in The Lambs’ 5th Floor Quarters; Tuesday, August 8th, 7PM..
Argentinian pianist Rosa Antonelli, a Steinway Artist since 1998 and a member of The Lambs, is one of today’s leading performers and a champion of classical Latin‐
American and Spanish music. She has toured extensively, with more than 1,000 concerts in Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America and North America, and she is dedicated to performing and recording the works of these composers for audiences all over the world. Her benefit performance today marks Hispanic Heritage month, and benefits The Lambs Foundation. Ms. Antonelli performed the World Premier of Astor Piazzolla’s Two Tangos in her recital at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium Perelman Stage in 2011. Joe Franklin called that performance “Riveting,” and he stated “…incomparable Horowitz and Rosa Antonelli’ is the closest I’ve seen to that master….Ms. Antonelli’s artistry on stage was absolutely stunning; the musical poetry mesmerizing.” Rosa also gave the NY Premier of the Champagne Waltz by Albeniz, and the Tres Argentinian Dances by Luis Gianneo in her last appearance at the same stage of Carnegie Hall, on October, 2014. Her performances consistently garner rave reviews. Most recently Rosa performed at the Consulate General of Argentina, May 18, 2016, for the Alberto Ginastera Centennial Gala.
Her latest recording, Abrazando – Latin Embrace, by Albany Records, is a rich and varied sampling of music, bringing together standard repertoire works with a few less familiar gems. Rosa is also a respected teacher of piano technique and has given seminars and lectures in various European and Latin America countries…and was the chairwoman of the Piano Department at the Provincial Conservatory of Music “Alberto Ginastera” for ten years, held the position of Professor of the Piano Department at the National University of La Plata in Buenos Aires, and was invited to
join the faculty of the Piano Department of Adelphi University when she came to the U.S. in 1999. Her book Piano, the Spirit of Technique and Interpretation for Teachers and Students is available on Amazon. In 2006, the United States honored Ms. Antonelli by granting her American citizenship because of her government status as “An Artist of Extraordinary Ability.”
