Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The particular interest and success of a project by Quartetto di Roma is revealed on this CD. Two great composers of 19th-century opera, Verdi and Puccini, approached the chamber quartet form, a symbol and prerogative of transalpine countries. All members of the Quartetto di Roma come from previous chamber music and concert experiences, and share the common desire to carry on the prestigious Italian string quartet tradition.
