Interpreter and creator: Uriel Pascucci performs Beethoven, Mussorgsky and his own composition on his latest disc

The idea of the composer / creator is an old one and whilst the concept has a great deal of resonance today with many young contemporary composers, the role of composer / pianist is one which still holds an aura of the past, from Liszt through Grainger to more recent names such as Ronald Stevenson. 

The young Argentinian pianist and composer, Uriel Pascucci is one who combines a pianistic career with that of composer, performing both his own and other composers' music. With his latest album on iMD-Classics, Pascucci wants to bring back an approach of interpreter and creator, and the disc combines Beethoven's Piano Sonata no. 30 in E major and Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition with his own Prelude, Tango and Fugue.

If you are interested in sampling Pascucci's pianistic talents further, then I can recommend his YouTube video of him performing his own transcription of Astor Piazzolla's Invierno Porteño.
