Notes and Editorial Reviews

The DUO ALTERNO, defined by Los Angeles Times “the high theatrics Duo with a strong personality”, by The Washington Post “the duo with a big voice and a fine sense of comedic timing”, by la Repubblica “the duo that gives voice (and piano) to the Italian century”, by the Globe and Mail “the inventive Duo” and by The Indu of Chennai “an electric experience”, was born in Torino (Italy). With its performances of over than 70 Italian living composers, the DUO is considered one of the most significant reference points in the vocal-piano repertorio of works by composers ranging from the early 20th century to today. Since its debut in Vancouver in 1997 it has kept concert and master-classes in over thirty countries. Many composers (including Read more Giacomo Manzoni and Ennio Morricone) have written pieces for soprano Tiziana Scandaletti and pianist-composer Riccardo Piacentini, both of whom are graduated with top marks in History of Music as well as in their respective fields of performance. On this new release, the Duo performs songs for soprano and piano written during the final year of Francesco Paolo Tosti’s life. Read less
