Ammara-Prosseda Piano Duo

Alessandra Ammara and Roberto Prosseda have been playing together steadily since 1999, drawing from their respective and intense international solo careers continuous stimuli and cues to be reposed in the duo's activity.

Winner of major competitions, including the Casagrande, Alessandra Ammara has been a guest in some of the most prestigious concert halls such as the Musikverein in Vienna and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. As a soloist, she has collaborated with renowned orchestras from the Viennaers to the Berliner Symphoniker, conducted by Fabio Luisi, George Pehlivanian and Bernard Labadie. In 2013 he recorded for Brilliant Classics the first CD on the music of Roffredo Caetani. Roberto Prosseda's notoriety exploded with Decca recordings dedicated to Mendelssohn. Since 2011 he has also performed on piano-pédalier: for the Hyperion label he recorded Gounod's complete works for this instrument, joined by the Orchestra della Radio Svizzera Italiana conducted by Howard Shelley.

Alessandra Ammara and Roberto Prosseda recorded Mendelssohn's complete works for 4-hands piano, including the original transcription of the incidental music for A Midsummer Night's Dream, on a Decca CD released in November 2015. They also recorded Mendelssohn's Concertos for two pianos in E major and in A flat Major with Residentie Orkest The Hague, conducted by Jan Willem de Vriend (Decca, 2019).

In addition to Mendelssohn's complete works, their repertoire includes masterpieces by Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, and rarities by 20th-century composers, including Casella, Omizzolo, Respighi, Cafaro, Castiglioni, Lombardi, Fedele, and Dall'Ongaro.
