Description: The bulk of Piatti’s music was designed to show his own skill as a cellist to best advantage as in the stupendously virtuosic Op. 22, but the hothouse atmosphere of the salon is not far away from L’Abbandono or the Notturno. Texts included. Andrea Noferini (cello), Roberto Plano (piano), Joanna Klisowska (soprano).
