Notes & Reviews:

Adolfo Fumagalli (1828 - 56), one of four musician brothers from Inzago, near Milan, made a name for himself across Europe as 'the Paganini of the piano', astonishing audiences with dazzling technique and acquiring a reputation for performances using his left hand alone. Fumagalli composed a large body of piano music - over 100 opus numbers - many being operatic fantasies and virtuosic studies of the type presented in this anniversary recital given in his home town. The CD also features several virtuoso studies from the set of 24 in Fumagalli's École du pianiste modern, published in Paris in 1854.
