Catalogue Number: 07Q051
Reference: TC 841908
Description: This reissue replaces the out-of-print version ASV released 14 years ago when the Cola di Rienzo overture, probably the first complete orchestral work of Sgambati (1866) and the seven minute Massenet orchestration of a seven-minute piano piece were first recordings. In fact, this is the only currently available recording of the highly romantic concerto since La Bottega Discantica, whose late release we just offered two years ago this month, has apparently been mortally wounded by the calamitous Codaex bankruptcy which caused us so much havoc last summer. Francesco Caramiello (piano), Nuremberg Philharmonic; Fabrizio Ventura. Original 2001 ASV release (09D003).
