The lively curiosity, combined with the taste for deepening and the need for new experiments, they made him arrive to contemporary music, interpreting numerous compositions in the premiere absolute performance and to be successfully proposed in recitals, multimedia works, concerts show with programs of rare inventiveness and originality in the context of prestigious reviews and Festivals with other soloists and with authoritative voices such as those of Glauco Mauri, Pamela Villoresi, Eugenio Allegri, Ugo Pagliai, Paola Gassman, Massimo Dapporto, Moni Ovadia, Francesco Guccini.

He has recorded for the record companies Dynamic, Edipan, Accord for Music. For Bongiovanni he recorded in world premiere the CD Albe-opera omnia of chamber Vocal Music - by Domenico Alaleona; for the productions Gog & Magog has recorded the CD L'anima de Vino una sera cantava.

Always fascinated by the French mélodie, she has given numerous recitals of poetry in the music of authors such as Fauré, Berlioz, Duparc, Chausson, Debussy, Poulenc and Satie. A separate mention deserves the musical path dedicated to the Chansons of Léo Ferré, reworked for soprano voice; an original and innovative setting, with the execution of versions unreleased that saw Marcantoni perform in successful recitals with exclusive programs.

In this regard, the director and writer Mauro Macario, one of Ferré's greatest experts, writes: Léo Ferré has been revisited and re-proposed, in all these years, in multiple musical costumes often apartments to distant worlds and interpretive ways or, apparently, incompatible with the source original. However, in the questionable arbitrariness, they revealed of the master, the elaborate appearance open to diversified solutions. Rossella Marcantoni, soprano of modernity, did not choose the path of metamorphosis, but that of elevation. He took to the extreme what is classic, cultured, and even sacred is inherent in Ferré, he transferred his melodies to the high areas of vocality lyrical, he freed them in a sound of crystal pure as evocative shards of poignant emotion, he added in the sublime the absolute tension that animates every existing instance of the poetcomposer. From a strict Orthodox discipline Rossella Marcantoni knew, for choice, break away periodically to explore other expressed terrains, from vocal music to chamber to the contemporary one, experimenting with new sound morphologies. In our case, even staying in the technical and timbre registers that best add to its potential, we have the feeling that the singer has found a vocal cross between internal voice and lyrical voice, a tone independent, more realistic, more accessible even to those who are not passionate about opera.

And if Ferré said, about his Genesis "Je suis dicté" , so Marcantoni could affirm "I am Sung".

The "ferreiana" experience gave birth to the recording of the CD Les Fleurs du Mal en Musique Léo Ferré / Charles Baudelaire, recorded in world premiere for the label Movimento Classical of Milan. The CD, reviewed by Aldo Nicastro in the monthly music of January 2016, highlights the particular timbre quality of Rossella Marcantoni's voice, defined as luminous:...brava la singer to assert the right to adhere to the baudelairian saying with an appropriate recited dramatic, which explains its very strong desecrating value.

She has performed several times at the festival Ferré of San Benedetto del Tronto, alongside icons of chanson French such as Juliette Greco, Georges Moustaki and others. He also performed in the absolute premiere the sacred hymns of Léo Ferré (Ave Maria, Benedictus, Agnus Dei) whose manuscripts were found by the family after the death of the Chansonnier at the festival of Sacred music Gaude Mater of Cestocova in front of the Primate of Poland. He has recorded for RAI Tre, as well as for radio and television in many countries. He holds Master Classes of improvement of Opera and Chamber singing in different institutions Italian and foreign.
