Current calendar
    Press  &  video
Prosseda's recording of Mendelssohn's 1st+2nd piano concert with Dutch Residentie Orkest will be released in September 2018by DECCA.
Together with his recording of the 3rd concerto (based on the completed fragment and done with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig) all Mendelssohn concertos interpreted by Prosseda will then be available.

The 2nd album of Prossedas Mozart project presenting the solo sonats 7-12  published by DECCA Italy has been received - just as the 1st album - with amazing   reviews.
As the first album, the second is available at DECCA Italy/Universal  and on i-tunes  and  amazon and listed by spotify.

Concerning the challenges and awardings of his Mozart conception, Prosseda gave an interesting interview to the online-magazine piano street.com: read more


Prosseda's recording of piano works by Charles Gounod has been put into the long list3/2018 of the German Record Critics Award.
The album was published
by DECCA for the international market to mark the 200th birthday of Gounod in April 2018.

The first critics are underlining Prosseda's brilliant, but in the same time sensitive and fragrant play and his respectful and serious approach considering even the so-called small pieces as 'little jewels'.

Thus, this album is offering a new view upon the Gounod's piano work worth to be listened to.

Lombardis compositions, essais and writings are often motivated by  special aspects, which reach beyond music political, social and philosophical issues and concerns - which he also proposes for discussion in the frame of concert-lectures.

Lombardi already composed 4 operas  and currently intends working upon a quite exciting project:  a new opera "OFER" the libretto of which is based upon a novel by Man Booker-Prize winner David Grossmann).

Aside, he's preparing several commissioned symphonic and chamber music compositions for German orchestras and festivals to be premiered in 2018 + 2019.
Likewise, a new composition for the Morricone birthday in November 18 in Italy

Neharo't, Neharo't

  Audio
 
Among the many works she composed for great international orchestras and chamber music ensembles, there's the successful original soundtrack for the German silent movie "Der Golem" commissioned by ART WORKs Berlin in 1996 for Giora Feidman and the Arditti String Quartet.

Oliveros soundtrack is also available as independant concert adaptation: the suites f. clarinet and string quartett or string orchestra.
Detailed information and material for both formulas - the silent movie with Olivero's soundtrack and the 2 chamber music versions -  are available at ART WORKs Berlin.


Another of Oliver's works gets an increasing, but deeply sad importance in our period of worldwide wars and struggles and is currently often performed:  "Neharo't, Neharo't
With women in mourning, mothers, widows and sisters who had lost their loved ones, live recorded and woven into the composed music, Olivero gives the suffering of the victims in the battle zones of the world a moving voice.

The shadow which brings dreams, a scenique concert for 2 children choirs and chamber groups, is dedicated to original writings of children who had been deported to Theresienstadt, which, surrounded by death and despair, speak in simple words upon hope and the beauty of the creation.
2018, eigthy years after the pogrom night of November 9, 1938, Olivero sets against one of the darkest periods of human history the spiritual and mental  strength of the victims: a hymn to life.
