Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

  • A disc of chamber music from the Italian composer Ottorino Respighi, best known for his orchestral showpieces, most famously the Roman Triology.
  • Violinist Fabio Paggioro and pianist Massimiliano Ferrati perform two sonatas and a six-piece opus for violin and piano.
  • The liner notes include artist biographies.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2014
Fabio and Massimiliano Ferrati play the B minor Sonata of 1917 with a gently cushioned, poetic intimacy, so one is less aware than usual of being set up for a big tune which never quite arrives...[the other two works] receive sensitively phrased readings that capture the music's lyrical freshness and spontaneity.

MusicWeb International, 9th April 2014
The works on this bargain CD are performed wonderfully well by Fabio Paggioro and Massimiliano Ferrati. This is an equal musical partnership and their playing is of the highest quality throughout. The recording is clear and sonorous.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Paggioro and Ferrati and Hristov and Valjarevic offer very different readings of the Bminor Sonata. I like both of them very much and have learned a great deal about the piece from listening to both. I'm also eager to hear Bernecoli and Bianchi's forthcoming recording of it in the second volume of their set.
