Notes & Reviews:

A recital of Anniversary tributes to Verdi, Wagner and Mascagni. - In the 19th century, paraphrasing, improvisation and arranging were widely practiced and played an important role in the dissemination of operatic music to a wider public and showcasing and extending instrumental virtuosity. - All of these four "improvisers" (Ritter, Wilhelmj, Bazzini and Sivori) were outstanding violinists, composers and renown international, concert musicians of their time.
