2017-04-06
Marta Zabaleta will be the soloist in the concert entitled “Mozart e Da Ponte” which will take place on April 29th at the Centro Cultural de Belém, as part of the “Dias da Música 2017” series. Besides the Piano Concerto No. 22 in E Flat Major by the composer from Salzburg, the audience will listen to the final scene of Don Giovanni with the vocal soloists Ana María Pinto (soprano), Luís Rodrigues (baritone), José Corvelo (baritone) and Wojteck Gierlach (bass). In this piano concerto Mozart borrows a moment from his opera Le nozze di Figaro, one part of the famous trilogy that he wrote with the librettist Da Ponte. Marta Zabaleta will be accompanied by the Orquestra de Câmara Portuguesa. Pedro Carneiro will conduct.
The Guipuzcoa-born pianist's upcoming engagements include a concert entitled "Goyescas" at the Real Academia de San Fernando in Madrid (a work she recorded recently for the label La mà de guido), the presentation of the CD recorded with the cellist Asier Polo, which includes works by Rachmaninoff and Franck, and also a concert, with Asier Polo once again, at the Auditorio Manuel de Falla de Granada.
