8th Algarve International Piano Festival welcomes renowned Portuguese pianist António Rosado this March 9

Portuguese piano soloist António Rosado will perform this March 9 at 7pm at Portimão’s TEMPO Theatre.

“One of the greatest Portuguese pianists of our time”, António Rosado, will perform a programme that is “extraordinary in its richness and diversity”.   

With his extensive piano repertoire, António Rosado has gained national and international recognition for his talent and taste for variety. 

The French magazine Diapason described him as an “interpreter who masters what he does. It’s as much about emotion and poetry as it is about colour and good taste”. 

Having studied at the National Conservatory of Music in Lisbon, he moved to Paris at just 16 years old to study under Aldo Ciccolini at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse, and attended the Perfection Courses in Italy’s Siena and Biella. 

Rosado has performed numerous times with national and international orchestras and his discography includes outstanding works from the solo piano and chamber music repertoire.

He has been honoured by the Maurice Ravel International Music Academy, the Perosi International Academy, the Vianna da Motta International Music Competition and the Alfredo Casella International Prize.

António Rosado holds the prestigious rank of Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, a distinction awarded by the French government in 2007.

This March, Rosado’s programme will feature Maurice Ravel’s “Valses nobles et sentimentales”, Isaac Albéniz’s “Iberia: El Albaicin”, Enrique Granados’s “Goyescas: La Maja y el Ruiseñor El Pelele”, and Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “Variations On A Theme Of Chopin op.22 Corelli op.42”

Ticket for the Festival range from €15 to €20 and can be purchased online via www.tempo.bol.pt or at TEMPO’s ticket office between Tuesday and Saturday from 1pm to 6pm or on the nights of the concerts. Students and people over 65 can benefit from a 25% discount upon presentation of proof.
