Honens International Piano Competition and the CPO celebrate the North American premiere of Mendelssohn's Third Piano Concerto. Unfinished at the composer's death, the score has been completed and reconstructed for exclusive performance by pianist Roberto Prosseda. This all-Mendelssohn program also includes the Concerto for Two Pianos in E Major in which Prosseda is joined by his wife, Honens Laureate, Alessandra Maria Ammara.
