The legendary pianist Vladimir Horowitz chose to leave his papers to Yale University upon his death in 1989. Today, Yale honors his legacy through the Horowitz Piano Series, which brings many of the world's great keyboard artists to Yale and presents the distinguished pianists of the Yale faculty. Pianist Roberto Prosseda who Gramophone magazine exclaimed; "has a fiery and fluent technique", will perform a program of music by Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Schubert on Feb. 13 for the series. Here are the pieces;

Mozart: Fantasia in C minor, K. 475
Mozart: Piano Sonata No. 14 in C minor, K. 457
Mendelssohn: Venetianisches Gondollied, Op. 30, No. 6
Mendelssohn: Fantasie, Op. 28
Mendelssohn: 4 selections from Lieder ohne Worte (Songs Without Words), Op. 30
Mendelssohn: Rondo capriccioso, Op. 14
Schubert: 4 Impromptus, D. 899

Prosseda recently spoke with the Yale School of Music about modern modes of communication, musical expression, and the repertoire he'll perform here at Yale. He said; "There are millions of people who use Facebook and YouTube but will never enter a classical music auditorium if first we don't help them 'taste' and discover the intensity of a live classical music concert."
