Notes & Reviews:

Sandro Fuga inherited a passion for art and music from a family line which includes the composer Luigi Nono. He felt himself part of a long tradition, seeing music as the expression of emotions and refusing to join in with avant-garde "musical clownery". The First Sonata is unusual in form, its dramatic, agitated central movement flanked by slow movements of great emotional intensity. The Second Sonata is more elegiac, though not without virtuoso dialogue and a spectacular conclusion. By turns melancholy and strikingly luminous, the Third Sonata is filled with genuinely moving impressionistic meditations.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Fuga's violin and piano music is deep and rich and exploits the most beautiful colors of both instruments. The phrases are clearly and logically laid out, yet the trajectory of the music is always surprising. It is filled with emotion. His music is serious, extremely beautiful, and filled with true emotional expression. I imagine that the pianist, who has an impressive career as a soloist, is a member of the composer's family. He and the three Italian violinists (each one plays a different sonata) are all wonderful players who play beautiful sounding instruments.
