Other than Mendelssohn, of whose piano music he is considered to be one of today's leading interpreters, Prosseda’s performances of Mozart, Schubert, Schumann and Chopin have been particularly praised, and these composers have in fact featured in Prosseda’s recent Decca recordings, including the complete Mozart Sonatas (2015-18). An active proponent of Italian music, Prosseda also recorded the complete piano works of Petrassi and Dallapiccola. In September 2011 Prosseda gave his debut on the pedal piano, performing the Concerto for Pedal Piano by Gounod in the world premiere in modern times. In 2012 he recorded Gounod's four pieces for pedal piano and orchestra with the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana conducted by Howard Shelley for Hyperion.
