"Raúl Canosa has a universe of creativity very rare to find in such a young musician and the radiation of his sound creates incredible lights and shadows that left us hypnotized, unable even to clap..."
Raúl Canosa is a Spanish pianist, a Master’s degree graduate from the Colburn School, who, at age twenty-three, has debuted at the iconic Musikverein of Vienna and has performed at Der Zentrum de Bayreuth at the Wagnerian Festival. He has played as a soloist with orchestras in Argentina and Spain, performing Chopin’s Concerto No. 1 Op. 11, Tchaikovsky’s Concerto Op. 23 and Beethoven’s Concerto No. 5 Op. 73 among others. He regularly plays at the National Auditorium of Madrid with the Andrés Segovia Orchestra thanks to A+Música.
His creative spirit has led him to explore practices such as ornamentation, composition, preluding, and performance of basso continuo, especially in classical concertos. For his debut at sixteen, performing Beethoven’s Concerto No. 1, he composed the first movement Cadenza, a practice he later continued for Mozart’s Concerto No. 9 and Haydn’s D major Concerto.
In his CD, to be released whenever the improvement about the coronavirus situations allows for it, is sponsored by Shigeru Kawai and entitled, “Spanish Serenades and Dances”, he juxtaposes various musical genres as treated by different composers including the well-known authors Albeniz, Turina, and Granados, as well as lesser-known composers Rodrigo, Mompou, and Monsalvaxe. Included will be two world premier by Miguel Vallés and Carlos Danés.
