Performers Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Italian contemporary composer Appignani, began to play piano and cello as a small child, and was later drawn to composition. He identifies as "The Last Bard", the person giving voice to the deepest human emotions, from the ancient times of the Gilgamesh Saga to the present world, man's journey on an epic scale. Appignani's music cannot be put into a style, it presents life in all its expressions and feelings, from simple folksong to frantic complexity and energy.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Gustav Mahler Hall, Dobbiaco, Bolzano, Italy (2009-07-12&2010-09-11_2010-).
