Notes and Editorial Reviews

Shéhérazade and Capriccio Espagnol by Rimsky Korsakov have quite inexistent discography in their piano duo arrangements. These original versions for piano four hands of the same author are performed faithfully to the text from the first to the last note. Marco Sollini, who has been lauded by critics and fellow musicians for his energy, technique, and sincerity, has performed throughout Europe, United States, Latin America, Indonesia and Africa. In addition to his work as a recitalist, he has performed with many orchestras. He is particularly interested in rare and unpublished Italian works and has released the premiere recordings of the complete piano works of Puccini, Giordano, Mascagni, Leoncavallo, Bellini, Verdi, Persiani Read more and Offenbach. Barbatano Salvatore graduated with top marks at the Conservatory of Music “Santa Cecilia” in Rome and then he graduated at the Music Institute “G.B. Pergolesi “in Ancona in musical disciplines.
