Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

A renowned cellist in his own time, Carlo Alfredo Piatti (1822-1901) is known for composing his 12 Caprices, a set recognized for its technical difficulty and complexity, and widely used as developmental exercises for cellists. On his debut Navona Records release, Piatti: 12 Caprices For Solo Cello, Venezuelan/American cellist Carmine Miranda interprets these virtuosic solo cello pieces, showing them as works that withstand treatment as significant concert repertoire. Each of Piatti's caprices has its own character with distinct writing style, musicality and emotion, while illustrating the prominence of violin music on Piatti's writing. Carmine Miranda attended the University Of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music where he obtained undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees, studying under the direction of cellist Yehuda Hanani. He has performed in concert venues such as the Aula Magna Hall in Caracas, Venezuela and Carnegie Hall.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Miranda's is the first disc I have heard. He plays the first Caprice with lively virtuosity. His is an exciting performance technically.
