Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the first in Chandos' new series of Rossini's complete piano works. Rossini's piano music includes some of the most sparkling music in the piano repertoire, with all the wit and brilliance we know from his overtures. The historical impact of these works is yet to be examined but it is thought they had a significant effect on composers such as Saint-Saëns and Satie. The series marks the debut of the award-winning pianist Marco Sollini. This is the first in Chandos' new series of Rossini's complete piano works.

 Rossini Rocks! December 13, 2013 By bess holloway (Boulder, CO) See All My Reviews "I had no idea before spotting this CD that Rossini wrote piano music in any quantity. His overtures are my favorite ones, so I took a chance on this piano presentation. What a great surprise! I love it, and so will you." Report Abuse
