NEW CD RECORDING

dec 20th 2020 - A monographic recital with some of the most representative works by Schubert, including both original compositions for piano duet and arrangements of chamber music and Lieder, genre so much

loved by the composer himself and of great significance in his opera.

The recital turns into a tale that leads us to places of spirit, to be carried away by tenderness, joy, silence and Sensucht. The

singable and graceful melodies of the short pieces and the intense phrasing of the more complex works accompany the listener along this unusual musical path, like a wanderer through the land of

his soul

The recording project is the result of the collaboration with the piano maufacturer Luigi Borgato who gave the chance to play his las creation BORGATO GRAND PRIX 333


Review Fanfare

May 2021


"[...] this is superb [...]"

"[...] This is Want List material"

"the Palmas’ rapport reminds me of the playing of the Justus Franz/Christoph Eschenbach duo (whose superb Schubert was at one point collated into a Brilliant Classics box, and whose Mozart is peerless)"

"Variations in A♭ Major, D 813 , in a magnificent performance"

Borgato Grand Prix 333

GRAND PRIX 333 is the greatest and the longest concert grandpiano in the world: about 1,64ft longer than the traditional others concert grand pianos.

It is completely handmade, using precious woods such as rosewood for the inside covering, mable for the bridges, beech as headrest for the mechanic, hornbean for the levers and the ebony for the black keys and, last but not least, the "magic" spruce - personally selected by Luigi Borgato from the famous Spruce Wood in Passau, Germany - which is especially in charge for the extraordinary speed of the sound, 9.842 ft/second instead of the usually 4.921 ft/second of all the others spruce wood.
