Rosa Antonelli hails from Argentina, but her second home may well be Carnegie Hall: The acclaimed pianist regularly treats New York audiences to her interpretations of works by Latin American composers. Tonight’s sampling of her repertoire will benefit the education programming of the League of United Latin American Citizens Council 23047.
- Piazzolla: The seven Piazzolla pieces on the menu tonight include summer and winter tangos from his Estaciones Porteñas, or Seasons of the Port City (that city being Buenos Aires).
- Villa-Lobos: The Brazilian composer will be represented by a warmly melancholy waltz (Valsa da Dor) and a prelude to one of his nine Bachianas Brasileiras, suites that mash up Baroque counterpoint with popular Brazilian rhythms.
- Albéniz: The two waltzes selected from this Spanish composer include the seasonally appropriate L’Automne Waltz and the new-to-New-York Champagne Waltz.
- Lasala—Romancero: Lesser-known contemporary Argentine composer Angel Lasala builds tension by unleashing thick clusters of chords in lapping waves.
- Ponce—Romanza de Amor: A 2/4 time signature propels this melody of this short 1917 piece forward in an amorous rush.
- Gianneo—Tres danzas argentinas: Luis Gianneo shows off the piquant rhythms of his homeland in a suite from 1938, when the country was still a tiny island.
- Ginastera—Danzas Argentinas: This 1937 trilogy for solo piano is a wild ride, starting with the first piece: during the “Dance of the Old Oxherd,” the left hand sticks to the black keys and Db major, while the right only plays white keys in C major.
Among the world's most storied venues, Carnegie Hall has hosted the finest performers since philanthropist Andrew Carnegie founded it more than 120 years ago. Finished in 1891, the structure was planned just before the advent of steel-frame construction, necessitating a solid masonry design that insulates its halls from outside noise and lends the exterior its red-brick charm. The hall's architects traveled to Europe during the planning stages, carefully noting the acoustic qualities of the continent's best venues while finding themselves put off by the overwrought baroque stylings of many of the buildings. The resultant design eschews flowery ornamentation for a spare, elegant Italian Renaissance style, coupled with peerless sonic resonance. The Hall's centerpiece—the historic Perelman Stage—is renowned for its acoustics and Italian design rife with white walls, gold fixtures, and graffiti tags from Michelangelo.
