Notes & Reviews:

During his last decade, Rossini wrote a series of 13 volumes he called Sins of Old Age, of which volume 8 is subtitled Album de château. It contains 12 pieces, each richly characterized. Many are fuelled by an operatic sense of vitality, and we also find dances, fugal writing, and a nightmarish dream episode of great intensity. The five pieces from volume 9 offer equal pleasures - a Christmas Carol, self quotations from his operas, and a skittish black note joke, all served up with his inimitable gift for melody and enjoyment. 'Marangoni has a beautiful legato touch, and a keen sense of phrasing.' (American Record Guide, on Vol. 1: 8.570590-91)

MundoClasico.com
Alessandro Marangoni is a performer renowned for his expressive, delicate and special mastery of legato. Mind that each of these parts contains a pathos and raises accurately than subjecting them to an individualized treatment, handling the piano in the manner of Master of Pesaro.

Infodad.com
It is the richness, the contrast among these pieces that makes them so delightful to hear, and Marangoni's free-and-easy virtuosity lets listeners focus on the delights of the music rather than any struggles of the pianist...

The New Recordings, Cliff Classics
This 2-CD set is the fourth of Alessandro Marangoni's traversal of all of these little (some even not-so-little) gems. He has the temperament and technique in abundance to bring off the flashier pieces with panache, while at the same time imbuing the longer ones (e.g., the Prelude semi-pastorale) with a sense of continuity...

David's Review Corner
It ends on a serious note with Specimen de l'avenir (Specimen of the Future), music intentionally full of rhetoric and no substance. Book Nine contains sections for violin, cello, harmonium and horn, the present disc containing only those sections that involve the piano. That leaves five substantial sections lasting some thirty-four minutes, the Petite Fanfare played in the version for four hands, Marangoni performing both parts. More arresting in the poetic moments of the two discs, and with hands that make quiet passages quite captivating, Marangoni makes the two discs a valuable addition to the catalogue.
