Sat 6/8 @ 8PM
Italian pianist Roberto Plano won the 2001 edition of the Cleveland International Piano Competition, and since then has enjoyed a stellar concert career, as most winners of this prestigious event have. He went on to win or place as a finalist in several more competitions, perform recitals in major concert halls in the U.S., Canada and Europe, and share the stage with major orchestras worldwide. He’s also appeared on more than two dozen records, by himself or in collaboration with ensembles.
He’s coming back to Cleveland to perform a recital at the Cleveland Institute of Music’s Kulas Hall, where he’ll perform music by Otterino Respighi, Franz Liszt (a particular favorite of Plano’s), Francisco Tarrega, Heitor Villa-Lobos and Alberto Ginastera. The performance concludes with Johannes Brahms Piano Quintet, Op. 34, for which he’ll be joined by the Omni Quartet, featuring Cleveland Orchestra members Amy Lee and Alicia Koelz on violins, Joanna Zakany on viola and Charles Bernard on cello.
Tickets are $35-$45.
