Notes & Reviews:

Guido Rimonda and Cristina Canziani perform three intimate works for violin and piano. Chief among them is the world premiere recording of Dancla's 'Petite Ecole de la Melodie', a set of twelve charming pieces in the salon style popular at the end of the nineteenth century. It is complemented by the D minor Sonata for violin and piano by Saint-Saens and, finally, an arrangement for violin and piano of the 'Meditation' from Massenet's opera 'Thais'. A well-known and respected violinist in Italy, Rimonda plays a 1721 Antonio Stradivari known as the 'Jean-Marie Leclair'.

Gramophone Magazine
Rimonda and Canziani are talented young artists, playing with such rhythmic zest it could easily have listeners dancing. This is light music at its most attractive, with the pieced nicely varied.
