The astonishing Jorge Luis Prats makes his DVD debut in this stunning live concert from the 2007 Miami International Piano Festival. Prats, hitherto known mostly among the piano cognoscenti,is a virtuoso in the grand manner whose technical powers and rare artistic temperament illuminate a vast repertoire. His Miami recital runs the gamut from Bach/Busoni to his Cuban compatriot, Ernesto Lecuona — all delivered with an extraordinary pallet of pianistic color. Bonus: Includes “A Conversation with Jorge Luis Prats” hosted by Frank Cooper.
Stereo, color, 95 minutes (plus 60-minute bonus). All regions.
“Cuban virtuoso Jorge Luis Prats (b1956) is an old-fashioned romantic. …after a while it is easy to take his fabulous technique and palette of tonal colours for granted.”
