Notes and Editorial Reviews

The works presented by the Trio di Parma on their first CD pay homage to the great Italian composer Ildebrando Pizzetti. However lately he hasn’t been performed so much anymore and therefore his works remained quite unexplored, especially as far as the chamber instrumental production is concerned. And yet the Trio had been performed for the first time in 1925 by some exceptional artists like George Enesco, playing the violin and Hans Kindler the cello. Even Tre Canti , just one year before, had been first executed at Palazzo Pitti in Florence by a prodigy of performing like Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Enrico Mainardi. We may then enjoy listening to some really precious works for violin and piano which are well completing the CD (i.e. two Read more Arias and a Colloquio) among which a world-premiére written for cello: an extemporaneous homage to a very young cellist (just seven years old) named Amedeo Baldovino, who has then turned to be one of the major cello interpreter at that time.

The notes which introduce this recording are well written by Gian Paolo Minardi, while the Trio di Parma is herein giving us a fascinating interpretation of some works written by his renowned fellow citizen, coming from the beautiful town of Parma as well. Read less
