Eseguite dal compositore stesso in occasioni private destinate alla Vienna borghese e alla cerchia di conoscenti, le cosiddette schubertiadi, le Sonate per pianoforte di Franz Schubert sono rimaste a lungo terreno inesplorato. La prima esecuzione pubblica di un ciclo “completo” delle sonate schubertiane risale al 1868 grazie all’interpretazione di Charles Halle presso la St. James Hall di Londra. Il programma prevedeva l’esecuzione delle sette Sonate a cui era stato assegnato un numero d’opera e le ultime tre sonate composte nel 1828. Nel novembre 1938 Webster Aitkin propose dodici delle sonate in una serie di quattro concerti pubblici. Per l’occasione il Daily Telegraph pubblicò un articolo di Richard Capell dal titolo Revaluation of a Neglected Heritage (Rivalutazione di un patrimonio trascurato) in cui l’autore esortava il recupero delle Sonate schubertiane da parte dei pianisti contemporanei e delle generazioni a venire, inaugurando una vera e propria “Schubert Renaissance” all’insegna della valorizzazione di un patrimonio dimenticato.

Performed by the composer himself on private occasions intended for bourgeois Vienna and the  circle of acquaintances, the so-called “schubertiade”, Franz Schubert's Piano Sonatas have long  remained unexplored terrain. The first public performance of a "complete" cycle of Schubert's sonatas took place in 1868 with Charles Halle's performance at St. James Hall in London.            
The program included the performance of the seven sonatas assigned an opera number and the last three sonatas composed in 1828. In November 1938 Webster Aitkin offered twelve of the sonatas in a series of four public concerts. For the occasion, the Daily Telegraph published an article by Richard Capell entitled Revaluation of a Neglected Heritage in which the author urged the recovery of Schubert's sonatas by contemporary pianists and future generations, inaugurating a true "Schubert Renaissance" under the banner of the appreciation of a forgotten heritage.

Alessandro Cesaro showed a strong grasp of musical language and a deep interest in composition since he was a child. He studied piano with Franco Angeleri at the Conservatory of Padua and graduated with highest honors at 16 years of age; he continued his studies with Paul Badura-Skoda and Aldo Ciccolini. Prizes in prestigious competitions such as the “Premio Venezia”, the “Amadeus Giovani” of Palermo, the “Yamaha Prize” in Stresa, and especially the 48th CIEM in Geneva brought him to international attention as an outstanding 18-year-old interpreter. He regularly performs in Italy for such presenters as Serate Musicali di Milano, Amici della Musica of Padua, Vicenza, Verona, Trieste, and Udine, Unione Musicale in Turin, and Alessandro Scarlatti Society in Naples. He has played in Germany (Bochum, Paderborn), Switzerland (Geneva, Bienne, Basilea), Belgium (Bruxelles) and Argentina, where he toured eight times, playing in Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Tucumàn and Salta. In May 2008 he completed a tour of Mexico (Federal Capital and Michoacan), where he played for the National Autonomous University (UNAM) and for the Teatro de la Ciudad, inaugurating a new Steinway piano. Especially well received were his performances of the complete works of Chopin and Schubert and of the 32 Beethoven sonatas on period instruments for the Festival Euganeo. In 2009 he collaborated in the Italian premiere of the recently discovered Cant de les estrelles by Granados. In 2011 he completed a three-year cycle of all the 32 Beethoven’s Sonatas in Adria and Feltre (Italy) and in 2014 he was invited to the 54° Septiembre Musical Tucumano, one of the most important festivals in South America. He performs regularly with such orchestras as I Solisti Veneti, the Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto, the Orchestra of the Suisse Romande, the Collegium Musicum Basel, the Chamber Orchestra of Bienne, the Orchestra of the Theater of Cordoba, the Orchestra of the Province of Tucumàn, and the Sicilian Symphonic Orchestra, collaborating with such musicians as Claudio Scimone, Paul Badura-Skoda, Anton Nanut, Pedro Ignacio Calderòn, and Sergio Balestracci. The Music Critics Association of Argentina awarded him the “Premio Revelaciòn 2015” for a recital organized by ALAPP (Latin American Association of Teaching Pianists) at the Art Museum “Isaac Fernández Blanco”. Last year he presented the program “Chopin at Palma de Mallorca” on a tour in the United States, while this year he has realized in Padua for the first time in the history of the Friends of Music the full performance in consecutive evenings of the ten Sonatas for piano by Alexander Scriabin. A distinct characteristic of his personality is his extraordinary versatility, which allows him to have in his repertory the complete works of major composers for piano, including Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and Chopin. He has recorded with Rivo Alto and Azzurra Music (Beethoven) and recently he released an album of Rondos, Variations, and Fantasies by Jan Ladislav Dussek. He is equally active as a composer and his works, published by Swirly Music, are regularly performed.
