Notes & Reviews:

A recital of solo piano works from little-known Italian aristocrat and late-Romantic-era composer Roffredo Caetani, played by pianist Alessandra Ammara. World premiere recordings! Caetani's music reveals a marked Ferruccio Busoni influence, thickly chromatic and polyphonically complex. The first commercial recording dedicated to Caetani's piano music. Booklet notes and artist biography in Italian and English

MusicWeb International, 11th April 2014
The music on this disc is a considerable find...[Ammara's] work is subtle and delicate, her rubato relaxed and natural. Even though much of the music on this record is essentially low-key, she is able to maintain the interest with intelligent characterization and total commitment.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Apparently there is still gold to be mined from the treasures of undiscovered music. While the vein may be largely tapped out, that music of this caliber is still out there is cause for much rejoicing. Don't miss it, and give credit to Ammara's glowing performance.
