"Emma Abbate, like the great Gerald Moore, is a pianist who can bring life to her contribution for its own sake, full of colour ..."
Described as 'an amazingly talented pianist' by Musica, Emma Abbate performs with many of the leading singers and instrumentalists of her generation.
Her latest release is the first of two volumes of Mozart's complete piano duets on original fortepianos with Julian Perkins for Resonus Classics. This album was recorded on two original instruments forming part of the Richard Burnett Heritage Collection of Early Keyboard Instruments, and represents the final recording made at Finchcocks Musical Museum.
Emma is also releasing a series of recordings devoted to 20th century Italian vocal chamber music, the latest of which is the world-première disc of Shakespeare Sonnets by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco with the baritone Ashley Riches for Resonus Classics.
Future plans include the release of two discs devoted to works by Stephen Dodgson for Toccata Classics: world-première recordings of his cello and piano music with Evva Mizerska, and his piano quintets with the Tippett Quartet.full biography »
