Notes and Editorial Reviews

The present CD pays homage to the Italian great violinist Renato De Barbieri (Genova, 1920 - Trento, 1991), whose artistic life has regrettably been forgotten in these days. His career and notoriety reached the height during the fifties and the sixties, indeed he recorded a number of works for HMV.

The careful digital remastering from the original LPs reveals the wholeness of his talent as virtuoso and performer. His gift is here enjoyable not only for works as Paganini’s Le Streghe and Ravel’s Tzigane but mainly also for twentieth century’s masterpiece Sonata n.1 per violino e pianoforte of Sergey Prokofiev.
