Description: Like the previous Fano issue frim this label (05P059), this one brings us mostly youthful works: the 26-minute sonata is the work of a 23-year-old and thus notable for its lyricism, eschewing the passions of youth; the 1892 Rimembranze have a whiff of Liszt about them and the pezzi (1894 and 1933) could have both been written at the earlier date. The brief 1970 sonata by Omizzolo is a stylistic non sequitur but its tonality won’t offend anyone buying the disc for the Fano. Rocco Filippini (cello), Andrea Bacchetti (piano).
