Notes & Reviews:

This third disc in Naxos' Martucci Edition, comprising the complete orchestral works, continues with the 'First Piano Concerto' which, while indebted to Chopin and Mendelssohn and prefiguring Rachmaninov, nonetheless has its own expressive immediacy. By turns sensuous and serene, nostalgic and intensely yearning, 'The Song of Remembrance' is a rare example of a song cycle for voice and orchestra composed in nineteenth-century Italy. Volumes 1 and 2 of the Naxos Martucci Edition are available as NXS 8570929 and NXS 8570930.

Gesualdo Coggi plays the block chords with deep, resonant tone - stunningly reproduced by the Naxos engineers - and brings off the various rippling figurations with dexterous clarity. He gets first-rate support from Francesco La Vecchia and the Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma. The ensemble is strong in all departments, but the strings, tonally vibrant and trimly phrased, are particularly beautiful.
