Rassegna Stampa

Prosseda zeigt sich auch bei dieses Arbeiten als nachdrücklicher Gestlter, als kompetenter wie sensibler Anwalt des jungen Mendelssohn, der so früh so vollendet komponieren konnte. Rating: *****

Fono Forum, 12/2006

With excellent sound, and performances to match, Prosseda's exploration of little-known Mendelssohn is self-recommending

Prosseda’s articulation is a miracle of clarity

Colin Clarke, Fanfare, 1/2006

Roberto Prosseda proves to be a superb interpreter of this music. He has sure technique and an innate feeling for the lyricism to be found in every passage. When he gets to the Midsummer Night’s  Dream music, the results are magic.

Prosseda riesce a mostrare il talento di Mendelssohn allo stato puro, evidenziando come già giovanissimo Mendelssohn mirasse a un’idea di classicità fondata sull’equilibrio formale ed espressivo, su un sentimento della “natura”, potremmo dire, che Prosseda restituisce alla perfezione.
