Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sandro Fuga inherited a passion for art and music from a family line which includes the composer Luigi Nono. He felt himself part of a long tradition, seeing music as the expression of emotions and refusing to join in with avantgarde "musical clownery". The Sonata No. 1 is unusual in form, its dramatic, agitated central movement flanked by slow movements of great emotional intensity. The Sonata No. 2 is more elegiac, though not without virtuoso dialogue and a spectacular conclusion. By turns melancholy and strikingly luminous, the third sonata is filled with genuinely moving impressionistic meditations.
