Matteo Pomposelli at Teatro Flaiano Rome

Matteo Pomposelli at Teatro Flaiano Rome
Fourteen year old Matteo Pomposelli gave some very musicianly performances of Haydn,Albeniz,Szymanowsky
and Rachmaninov.
Playing to a packed out hall his professional presentation at that age was something to truly marvel at.
Already we had had a glimpse six months ago of what was on the horizon when he played Saint Saens 2nd piano concerto at Teatro Argentina.
Showing then great promise that is fast turning into fact as he played a very sensitive account of Haydn C major Sonata.
The new Steinway was a bit too muffled to allow the fluidity of sound that Haydn loved to explore in this Sonata.
It was generously donated though for the occasion by Alfonsi a major sponsor for many a year of this child prodigy fast maturing into a very serious artist.
Some sumptuous sounds in Albeniz El Albaicin ignited a passionate involvement as had the choice of his obviously very attentive mentor in choosing also the rarely heard Szymanowsky Chopin variations.
They allowed this young man to take command of the extreme technical demands that the composer made of his friend Arthur Rubinstein in the early 1900’s.

But it was in the Rachmaninov Moments Musicaux that allowed this young man to be totally involved in his search for the sumptuous nostalgia and romantic fervour that the composer demands.
Chopin’s “Cat” waltz op 34 n.3 was rattled off a bit too fast to allow these cats enough time  to preen their whiskers.
But the nocturne in C sharp minor op posth with which he closed gave us another glimpse of the artistry that is gradually being awakened in this already remarkably professional young pianist.
His next appearance will be eagerly awaited!
