Special Event

Italian Pianist Francesco Attesti
Friday, May 29 | 8 p.m.

La Plata Campus
Fine Arts Center Theatre
$10 in advance
$12 day of concert

CSM’s Communication, Arts, and Humanities Division is proud to present renowned Italian pianist Francesco Attesti in an evening of piano classics, featuring the world premiere of From Afar and In the Meanwhile by composer Raffaello Amabile, in collaboration with the Ballet Arts Academy at the Old Waldorf School.

Born in Cortona, Italy, pianist Francesco Attesti qualified at the Conservatory of Music Luigi Cherubini in Florence, and continued his studies at the Sommerakademie Mozarteum in Salzburg and Rome with Sergio Perticaroli, the Gubbio Festival with Jacques Rouvier, and in Florence with Hector Moreno. Mr. Attesti quickly distinguished himself, winning numerous prizes in many piano competitions. In 2003, 2004, and 2005, Attesti has been awarded a sponsorship for young talents from the Ursula Ströher Stiftung of Basel, Switzerland.

Raffaello Amabile is an Italian composer, born in Verona, the city where he began his studies at the conservatory "F.E. Dall'Abaco." Here, he received his diploma in composition under the guidance of Maestro Federico Zandonà. Authors who have most inspired his compositional work were the Italian composer Bruno Maderna, the Hungarian György Ligeti, and finally the Franco-greek Iannis Xenakis. Lately, as a result of the studies undertaken, he is approaching with increasing interest the music of the early twentieth century Europe and North America.

Founded in 2005, the Oscar Hawkins Ballet Arts Academy of the Old Waldorf School provides the community with a dance environment devoted exclusively to the study of classical ballet that follows the Vaganova method of training and its related arts. Artistic director Oscar Hawkins from Brandywine, Maryland holds a degree from the Duke Ellington School of Arts, where he studied under the supervision of Madam Lynn Welters. Shortly thereafter, he was recommended by Mikhail Lavrovsky to attend the Kirov Ballet Academy—now known as the Universal Ballet Academy—where he trained intensively with Rudolph Kharatian, Alla Sizova, Ludmila Morkovina, Nikolai Morozov, and Vladimir Djuluhadze.
