Notes & Reviews:

After years of comparative neglect Giuseppe Martucci is taking his rightful place as one of the most important late romantic Italian composers. His style is a happy and individual mix of Wagner and Verdi, dramatic chromaticism softened by lyrical, bel canto style melodies. Martucci was a composer, conductor, teacher, and excellent pianist, who made extensive European tours as a soloist. His music from his early period is written in sophisticated salon style, charming and picturesque. Later Martucci wrote more substantial works, like the two Piano Trios and Piano Quintet recorded on this release, full blooded romantic music in which the virtuoso pianism is proof of Martucci's great gift as a performer.
