Notes & Reviews:

Until the early 20th Century, Italian instrumental music remained overshadowed by opera. However, a number of composers born around the middle of the 19th century wrote excellent suites for clarinet and piano which brokered a "compromise between tradition and modernity". Alessandro Longo's 'Suite' imbues Classical form with "a passionate but never tormented or morbid Romanticism", while that of Antonio Scontrino adds a dash of Debussyan impressionism. Giuseppe Frugatta's splendid 'Suite' paints a wideranging emotional soundscape rich in late Romantic influences; that of Busoni frames a lyrical 'Elegia' with virtuosic outer movements.
