Roberto Prosseda :
Mendelssohn Piano Concerto 1&2
Roberto Prosseda continues his Mendelssohn project on the orchestral front with this ambitious recording of Piano Concerts No. 1 and 2 and of the Rondò Brillant op.29. He is accompanied by the Residentie Orkest The Hague, a historical Dutch orchestra founded in 1904 that in the course of its activity has collaborated with great composers (Richard Strauss, Igor Stravinsky, Max Reger, Maurice Ravel, Paul Hindemith) and famous conductors (Arturo Toscanini , Bruno Walter, Leonard Bernstein, Hans Knappertsbusch).
This recording was made under the baton of Jan Willem de Vriend, principal conductor of the orchestra, and also includes a superb reading of the Overture "The Hebrides" to complete the CD.
