Young Brazilian Pianist Aleyson Scopel to make NYC debut at Carnegie (Weill Hall) Saturday, November 23rd  

“His playing is not only technically brilliant but full of character and individuality.”  Piano scholar Bryce Morrison

  

New York is in for an extraordinary début concert this fall from a remarkable young Brazilian pianist lauded as one of the most distinguished music talents to emerge from Brazil in recent times and as a recognized celebrant of contemporary music.

An honor alumnus of the New England Conservatory of Music, Mr. Scopel will make his New York City/Carnegie Hall debut at the Joan and Sanford I. Weill  Recital Hall in a solo performance  on Saturday, November 23rd at 2 pm.

Mr. Scopel, known for his percipient lyricism and discerning techniques, has won numerous piano competitions including the Nelson Freire Competition and the Magda Tagliaferro Competition. A champion of contemporary music, Mr. Scopel’s program will include his performance of the world premiere of Cartas Celestes XV – Celestial Charts XV by renowned Brazilian composer  Almeida Prado. Upon hearing Mr. Scopel’s rendering of the first volume of Cartas Celestes, the composer commented: “It came straight from heaven!” Prado would later dedicate to Mr. Scopel the fifteenth volume of the series.

Mr. Scopel’s recital is centered on pieces from the mature styles of the respective composers, perhaps not what is usually expected in a début recital. But Mr. Scopel is partial to a more intellectual program than one weighted with virtuosic pieces. The two other works on the program besides that of Prado are longtime components of Mr. Scopel’s repertoire and ones to which he has a great deal of emotional attachment.

Mr. Scopel’s full program follows:

W. A. Mozart (1756-1791) – Rondo in A minor K. 511

J. Almeida Prado (1943-2010) – Cartas Celestes XV – Celestial Charts XV 

(World Premiere)

F. Schubert (1797-1828) – Sonata in A Major D. 95
