After a successful debut as conductor in June in Milano , Prosseda is looking forward to intensify this aspect of his career.

The first mark was set in January by Mozart

Universal/ DECCA released the last album with Prosseda's complete recordings of all piano sonatas, waited for with curiosity by his fans.
The double CD includes the sonatas 13-18, completed by the Fantasia K 475 and the posthume K 312.

Prosseda's Mendelssohn canon, brilliantly based on his complete recordings of the works for solo piano, will get new spectacular facets by 3 new albums:
the Double concerto f. violin & piano, programmed to be released by Universal/DECCA in July, followed in automn by the Sonatas f. violin and piano - both
recorded with Shlomo Mintz
- and finally the Concerts for 2 pianos, recorded with Alessandra Ammara.

Together with 1st+2nd piano concert (released in November 2018), the 3rd piano concerto (based on the completed fragment and recorded with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig), a large spectrum of Mendelssohn's concerts will be available till the end of the year.

Complementarily, a recording of the concert for piano and strings in A Minor is planned to follow later on.

"Stirring world premiere", that was one of the reactions with which the world premier of a new composition upon a biblique theme ("Sarah & Hagar) performed by the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker in the frame of  the Schumann-Fest 2019 was received in May 19.

This summer, Lombardi is going to return to his work upon a new opera project 
"OFER", the libretto of which is based upon a novel by Man Booker-Prize winner David Grossmann.

Furthermore, several commissions for new compositions are in discussion, among them an European theme and probably a text by late Nobel price winner Günter Grass.

Aside. there are also plans to produce several new Cds, including a recording of his string quartetts.

BETTY OLIVERO

" The aim of my musical creation is
 ... to participate in the essence of oral tradition:
transmission of essence, preservation and change ...

Neharo't, Neharo't

  Audio
 
In our period of worldwide wars and struggles, Olivero's "Neharo't, Neharo't gets an increasing, but deeply sad importance and is currently often performed: 
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.

Another of her compositions,
The shadow which brings dreams, is dedicated to original writings of children who had been deported to Theresienstadt, is meant to be a message of  hope, since the children, even though surrounded by death and despair, speak in simple words upon hope and the beauty of the creation.

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 for Giora Feidman and the Arditti String Quartet. After it's successful world premier in 1996, the music went around the world, accompanying the silent movie or as chamber music version for string orchestra: suites f. clarinet and string quartett or string orchestra.
