Description: All three of these composers were natives of Abruzzi. Mascitti, prominent violinist and composer, played a fundamental role in spreading the Italian style in France, making his fortune in Paris where he carried out his musical career; from there his fame extended to England and the Netherlands. Fenaroli, on the other hand, was a very important teacher and appreciated by Verdi for his treaty on the “Partimenti.” Fornaci is the oldest of the three composers, of which only the collection of arias from included in this album have survived. No texts. Labirinto Armonico.
