Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
These are pleasant, lightweight works that easily fade into the background. Among the composers, only Rossini wrote a substantial amount of piano music. I have found some quite enjoyable from time to time. The best piece here is a short 'Foglio d'Album' by Puccini. Galletto has a perfect feel for these unmistakably Italian pieces, with just the right flexibility of tempo and quantity of panache to make them come to life. Good recorded sound and sufficient notes.
