Despite the various spellings of Andrea Luchesi’s name (Luchesi, Luchese, Lucchesi, Luckesi) his country of origin always remains clear: he descended from those who left Lucca in 1300 for Venice. It may already be common knowledge, at least in part, that Luchesi sits at the heart of a debate which has reached has become of great importance where the world of classical music is concerned. Was he or wasn’t he Beethoven’s maestro? Was he or was he not the real composer of some of the most renowned masterpieces attributed to Mozart and to Haydn? And more generally what relationship did he have with Weiner Klassik? In spite of the controversy, posing these very questions, as vexing as they are, indicate to all just how important a composer he was. Here, Roberto Plano performs his Sonatas for the first time on a modern instrument, a Steinway, bringing out all the unexpected splendor of this composer, a composer the history of music had completely forgotten.
We’re very proud to introduce you to another great Italian pianist, First Prize Winner of the 2001 Cleveland International Piano Competition and finalist at the 12th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2005. He has just started collaborating with us as this is his first debut with our Label.
