Description: Italian harp music from the turn of the 20th century and later. Tedeschi was a harpist and his Etude-Impromptu is salon stuff but the 21-minute suite of 1902 is solid late Romanticism as is Galeotti's Fantaisie (1908). These are the latter's only three works for harp and the 1910 Legende is Impressionistic while the Scherzo-Caprice returns to the salon. Mortari's bright and sparkling, neo-classical Sonatina dates from 1936 while the more inward set (two slow movements - Sarabands and Notturno - before an etude-finale) of Studi comes from 1943. Eleonora Volpato (harp).
