Notes and Editorial Reviews

Anna Clementi- “actress of the voice” more than a singer, as she likes to define herself- has a long familiarity with the masterpiece of Arnold Schoenberg and records for the first time this music particularly congenial to her artistic personality. Andrea Vitello, one of the most promising young Italian conductors, directs his Ensemble BIOS in an accurate performance of one of the scores of greater complexity of the twentieth century. Red Music, a new work of the Florentine composer Andrea Portera, written for the same instrumental ensemble of Pierrot, completes this record.
