Notes & Reviews:

Musical transcription has a long and auspicious history, and Michele Mangani's arrangements follow a tradition of recreating popular operatic tunes for small groups of oboes, clarinets, flutes and horns, supplemented on this recording by double bass. These works span some 77 years of Italian opera, from Rossini's L'Italiana in Algeri to Puccini's Tosca, taking in the verismo of Mascagni's Cavalleria rusticana and the bel canto tragedy of Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor on the way.
