Notes and Editorial Reviews

This album is entirely dedicated to harp and introduces us to two composers active in the Historical Italian twentieth centruy period - Alfredo Casella. Casella's shy nature led him to compose more for himself than for the public or for the fame. The passionate interpretation by Alessandra Ziveri approaches with great momentum this double challenge: the premiere recording of unknown works and the Casella sonata an absolute harp music milestone.
