Welcoming Jorge Luis Prats for Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2
We are delighted to welcome pianist, Maestro Jorge Luis Prats to the stage to give an unforgettable performance of Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2.
Since May 2007, when Jorge Luis Prats gave his first recital at the Miami International Piano Festival, his career has undergone a dramatic ascent. His debut recitals at the prestigious Meister Pianisten series at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam were received with standing ovations. In 2010 he returned to the same series for the third time, an honor uniquely reserved for Alfred Brendel and Grigory Sokolov previously.
In May 2010, he stood in for Nelson Freire at his Salle Pleyel recital, to a tremendously enthusiastic response from the public, and in September of the same year, he again had enormous success at the festival Piano aux Jacobins in Toulouse. Since then, he has been regularly invited by the most prestigious piano series in France, like Grand Interpretes in Lyon, Grand Theatre de Aix en Provence, Piano 4 Etoiles series at Salle Pleyel, La Roque d’Anthéron, etc. Also, he plays regularly with Orchestre de Paris under the baton of Paavo Järvi.
“Even in these technically impressive times, playing of this caliber is rarely encountered”
