This new recording contains the four grand piano sonatas by Carl Maria von Weber. Written in the early 19th century these works mark the transition from the Classical to the Romantic style. Weber infused the classical sonata form with his own lyrical and dramatic, sometimes even theatrical, elements. The pianism is of the highest order, finding orchestral timbres and colours, as well as pianistic novelties in the virtuoso textures. As valuable additions to the four piano sonatas the famous Invitation to the Dance and the Rondo brillante are included. Michelangelo Carbonara finds drama, passion, wit and elegance in these wonderful, still underrated works. Carbonara studied at the famous Lake Como Academy, where his teachers included Dimitri Bashkirov, Leon Fleisher, Alicia de Larrocha, Claude Frank and Menachem Pressler. He won several international competitions, including the Schubert International Piano Competition in Dortmund.
