Mario Prisuelos and CEC Director Maribel Zubieta-Diaz (2016)

He was launched internationally at the Feuchtwangen Piano Festival in the acclaimed Musikzauber Franken in Germany, where the critics praised his great talent and forceful power of communication. He then embarked on intense activity in recitals, as orchestral soloist or in chamber groups, with debuts in halls in Vienna, Milan, Paris, London, Florence, Rio de Janeiro, New York, and Miami, among other cities.

He has made recordings with the Verso label, Sonoris, RTVE and Hrvatski Croatian Radio among others. His interest in innovative programming is exemplified in his production “Spanish Piano Music: from the Baroque to the present”, a CD recorded for Verso and introduced on concert tour in Central America and the United States.

His commitment to the musical creation of his time is fundamental, with the performance around the world of works, often dedicated to him, by such composers as David del Puerto, Jesús Torres, Jesús Rueda, Mario Carro, Alberto Carretero, NUría Núñez, Jesús Navarro, etc., premiered at both concerts and in recordings, particularly those for Spanish Television. He is a member of the duo Studio Inverso and of the SequenceSax Group, and has collaborated with musicians such as Guillermo Pastrana, José Franch-Ballester or the group Neopercusión.

Mario Prisuelos is considered one of the most relevant pianists of his generation, as stated by the critics, as demonstrated by his concerts and confirmed by his enormous European and American activity. He recently completed an extensive tour in the United States, debuting in New York’s Carnegie Hall, together with concerts among others in the National Auditorium in Madrid, IRCAM in Paris or at Zagreb Music Academy.

He is called on frequently to impart master classes at various teaching centres and universities in Europe and America (Princeton University, William Patterson University, Florida International University, the University of Costa Rica, etc.)

In 2015 Universal Music released the cd “Adalid: the romantic piano” in his first collaboration with the prestigious label. On November 7, 2014, Prisuelos performed works by Adalid, Soler, and Granados at the Rosita Segovia Theatre at Conchita Espinosa Academy.
