Rosa Antonelli, one of Argentina's leading pianists, is especially celebrated for her performances of the classical piano music of Latin America. Antonelli knew Piazzolla and others of these composers personally, and she plays this repertory with deep love and a very special warmth and understanding.

Antonelli's inward poetry forced me to rehear, and revalue, Piazzolla's Tangos, which she infused with an eloquence and inner communication."  Donald Vroon of American Record Guide has called Antonelli's Chopin playing "Utterly perfect—playing, pacing, sounds."

This special private invitation-only concert for Harvardwood members and friends celebrates the release of Antonelli's new CD, BRIDGES.  Chopin was the teacher of Georges Mathias, who was the teacher of Alberto Williams, who taught the great Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera, who in turn was the teacher of Astor Piazzolla, and in BRIDGES Antonelli plays the music of each of these, making the chain of connection one that can be experienced through the music itself.  Jacqueline Kharouf wrote in her review in Fanfare, "I will listen to this album for many years, and always with a sense of deep gratitude and admiration."

For this concert, Rosa Antonelli's program will include music by Chopin and Piazzolla and others.

A reception with wine cheese will follow the performance. 

Advance registration is REQUIRED.  No tickets will be sold at the door.

The exact address of the concert will be listed in the confirmation email that you receive soon after you register.
