Notes and Editorial Reviews

A renowned cellist in his own time, Carlo Alfredo Piatti (1822-1901) is known for composing his 12 Caprices, a set recognized for its technical difficulty and complexity, and widely used as developmental exercises for cellists. On his debut Navona Records release, Piatti: 12 Caprices for Solo Cello, Venezuelan/American cellist Carmine Miranda interprets Piatti’s virtuosic solo cello pieces, masterfully showing them as works that withstand treatment as significant concert repertoire. - Navona Records, a division of PARMA Recordings.
