“Prats is a rare genius, not only because of his extraordinary life story but because of his extraordinary gifts. The piano, he said, is merely the tool he uses to create music. The music he creates is stunning — it enthralls and amazes, while simultaneously stimulating the mind. Here is a prodigious talent whose experiences in Cuba and abroad are conveyed in each note he plays. He is now achieving the recognition that should have been his all along.” Adam Parker, Post and Courier
Hailed as a long-lost virtuoso in the grand tradition, Cuban pianist Jorge Luis Prats’ 2007 concert at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts under the auspices of the Miami International Piano Festival was recorded on the VAI label. It was the release of this live performance that reawakened great interest in his career and resulted in invitations to perform at the Verbier Festival, and in Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw for four consecutive years of an overwhelming response.
