Alberto Rosado (Salamanca, 1970) has been interested in contemporary music throughout his career, but it was especially during this last decade that his activity focused on today’s music, coming into contact with many European and Latin-American composers, both as a soloist and as a member of the “Plural Ensemble”.
He studied piano and chamber music with Josep Colom, Peter Nagy, Ferenc Rados, Jan Wijn and Luca Chiantore. He has played recitals in most main cities and festivals in Europe, America and Japan, and he has performed as a soloist with some of the finest European orchestras and ensembles with conductors such as Peter Eötvös, Susana Mälkki, Josep Pons, Rafael Frübeck de Burgos, Fabián Panisello, Zsolt Nagy, Arturo Tamayo, Philip Greenberg, Pedro Halffter, José Luis Temes, among others.
He has recorded the complete piano music of Cristóbal Halffter and José Manuel López López for the label Verso, plus a CD with works by Messiaen, Ligeti, Takemitsu and Cage. He has also recorded three monographic CDs with Plural Ensemble, dedicated to the music of Panisello (Col Legno), Camarero (Verso) and López López (Neos), and a disc of music by Antonio José with the “Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León”, for the label Naxos.
In addition, he has recently recorded for Kairos the Concerto for Piano and Orchestra and the Two Movements for piano by José Manuel López with the Deutsches Symphonie Orchestre conducted by Johanes Kalitzke.
He is professor of chamber music and contemporary piano, and coordinates the Contemporary Music Workshop at the Conservatory of Music in Salamanca.
