Sergio Gallo, another pianist to watch/hear!

Post by Lance » Sat Jun 27, 2020 2:32 pm

SERGIO GALLO. Here's a pianist I didn't know too much about but have a number of recordings that I have found that deserve attention. You can find out much about him here: http://drsergiogallo.co Now a Steinway artist, he has made a number of recordings for the Eroica, Quartz, Naxos labels and one especially outstanding recording for Grand Piano of the piano works of Henselt. Another most interesting CD on Eroica is music for two pianos [Khachaturian, Lutoslawski, Mozart and Brahms) with pianist Zeynep Ucbasaran. Just a heads up to you on this one.

Good morning Lance!

Found these two albums by Gallo on amazon. Very enjoyable! Thanks for the alert, and will now watch out for him!
