and other ticket offices.
Aged 16, Horacio Lavandera was the youngest competitor to win the Third International Piano Competition Umberto Micheli in Teatro alla Scala in Milan (Italy) in 2001. His diverse repertoire included pieces from baroque to contemporary music. He was also awarded a Special Prize by the Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala, for his interpretation of Ravel´s Concerto in G major in the final round. From this moment on, he has been invited to perform as a soloist with prestigious orchestras, as well as to offer recitals in America, Europe and Asia.
»That 17-year-old Horacio Lavandera can play the piano brilliantly becomes clear in the first few minutes« Klaus Kalchschmid writes in the »Süddeutsche Zeitung« following Horacio Lavandera’s concert in the Herkulessaal after winning the Umberto Micheli competition.
For his piano recital, Horacio Lavandera has chosen well-known and virtuoso pieces by Bach and Beethoven as well as the magnificent »Arrival of the Guests at the Wartburg« from »Tannhäuser« by Wagner/Liszt. He rounds off his programme with the works of Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla, produced by Horacio Lavandera for the Nibius label. This recording was awarded Best Album of the Month of October 2016 by Spanish music magazine Melomano.
