Notes & Reviews:

On the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the publication of Primo Libro di Toccate (1615), Arcana is proud to make this reference recording of Girolamo Frescobaldi's most popular work available again. Here, Rinaldo Alessandrini shows to full advantage his well-known skills as keyboard virtuoso as well as his familiarity with the madrigal repertoire of the time, so important for a proper approach to this revolutionary book, whose basic elements are the affetti and where rhetoric became the interpretive key. Two period Italian instruments are used here, making it possible to rediscover the colours appropriate to Frescobaldi's music: a harpsichord attributed to Celestini - the latest research apparently proves that it is not by this builder and that its construction dates from around 1650 - preserved in the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague; and the restored organ (c.1630), in the church of S. Maria del Carmine in Brescia.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Guido Mancusi was born in 1966 near Naples, sang in the Vienna Boys Choir, and earned degrees in Vienna. Since 1998 he has been principal conductor of the Schonbrunn Festival Orchestra, and he is conductor-in-residence at the Vienna Volksoper. Here he conducts those orchestras and two others in a program of his own music.

His compositional style is a pleasant combination of tuneful melodies with harmonies. The album opens with a four-movement, 14-minute Suite (1988) for string orchestra. Based on the letters in Bach's and Shostakovich's initials, the movements (Overture, Rumba, Waltz I+II, Quickstep) are lively and interesting. Joe Hofbauer is the soloist in Mancusi's 2-movement, 12- minute Trumpet Concerto (1989). He has a full and warm tone. The PAN European Philharmonia gives both of these works vivid, committed readings.
