David Amado is the Music Director of The Delaware Symphony Orchestra and is also a wonderful pianist. He met his wife Meredith Amado, violinist, while they were both students at The Jiulliard School, but before working on this program of chamber music, they had never performed publicly together.
The program, which included works of Grieg, Brahms, and Part, demanded an intimate communication between the two and the Amados did not disappoint. The instruments that the duos used were some of the world's finest as well.
Meredith used a violin that was manufactured by Nicolo Amati in 1662 in Cremona. It was impressive to hear an instrument that could have performed the music of each of these composers many years ago in its past.
David was equally careful in his choice of a Bosendorfer 9'2" concert grand, model 280.
Mr. Amado commented, "The Bosendorfer has so many possibilities. It is so expressive in every dynamic range and this piano is liberating to the pianist. The range of colors is astonishing and the piano speaks beautifully from the most gentle pianissimo to the boldest fortissimo. I never have to worry when I use a Bosendorfer."
