Notes & Reviews:

Gian Carlo Menotti was an Italian composer, well known in Italy for his Spoleto’s Festival dei Due Mondi, but most of all very famous in USA for his popular operas. The CD presents one of his most renowned operas, The Telephone, which is performed by a very extraordinary cast. Then the more intimate and hidden chamber-music production is represented by his Trio for violin, clarinet and piano and some unreleased piano solo pieces performed by Marco Sollini.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
All the music here is typical Menotti - fairly short, tuneful, and uncomplicated. There is a booklet with an article about the composer in a dreadful English translation. I would much prefer to have the text of The Telephone.
