Catalogue Number: 09P036
Label: Newton Classics
Description: One of the very few Italians of his generation who wrote almost solely for the keyboard, Golinelli was influenced greatly by Chopin and Mendelssohn. These sonatas date from 1845 and 1850 and you'll find him assimilating both composers into his own style. Not the first Golinelli we've offered either: back in 2005 (03G044), Tactus released a piano disc with his 24 Preludes. Francesco Giammarco (piano). Original 1995 Rivo Alto release.
