About

Benedetto Lupo has been heralded by critics as an "exceptionally fine pianist ... who has a remarkably fine touch and beautiful tone control" (The Oregonian). Praised for his "keen musical intelligence and probing intellect" (Miami Herald), and for combining "meticulous technique with romantic sensitivity" (Birmingham News), he continues to gain worldwide recognition.

Highlights for Mr. Lupo’s 2017-18 season feature performances with the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, Domaine Forget International Festival, Colorado Music Festival, Cliburn Concerts, Bourgie Concert Hall, National Gallery of Art Concert Series, and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Past seasons include performances with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Orquesta Sinfonica de Mineria and appearances at the Domaine Forget International Festival and the Ladies' Morning Musical Club.

This CD-book offers total immersion in the filmic and musical universe of Nino Rota, one of the greatest composers in the history of the cinema. "La strada" and "The Leopard" (with its unforgettable ball scene) are probably Rota's most famous scores, along with "8 1/2" and "The Godfather;" echoes of some of their inimitable themes are to be found in the "Concerto Soir e" premiered in 1962. This apparently 'classical' work doubtless contains the essence of the genius of Nino Rota, the most Baroque of modern composers.

"Lupo has two key attributes shared by outstanding Debussy interpreters: a seemingly infinite variety of touch and dynamics and a full to overflowing imagination...Lupo’s interpretations, free of anything predictable or routine, are entirely his own, thoughtful and fresh. Throughout, the audience listened in that rapt silence reserved for the best music-making."
