Notes & Reviews:

The 19th century "salon music" repertoire was characterized by the combination of hit tunes from popular operas combined with great instrumental virtuosity. The works performed by the Cavatina Duo on this album impressively demonstrate these phenomena, each a medley of favorite melodies from popular operas of the day. As this CD demonstrates, the Cavatina Duo (Eugenia Moliner, flute; Denis Azabagic, guitar) combine peerless technique with sensitive musicianship, making them the ideal interpreters of this repertoire. Also available with the Cavatina Duo: BRIDGE 9330 Astor Piazzolla.
