Notes and Editorial Reviews

Franco Gulli was one of the most prominent and active Italian violinists of the latter part of the twentieth century. He began his studies with his father (a pupil of Šev?ík and Ma?ák at the Prague Conservatory), then went to Arrigo Serato in Siena and later to Szigeti in Switzerland. His varied and significant career included leading the Orchestra of the Pomeriggi Musicali, Milan, for several years, after which he took up a similar post with Virtuosi di Roma. The recordings on this release showcase Gulli at the beginning of his rise to stardom, and were all made over the course of a decade between 1958 and 1967. Three of these works feature Gulli’s wife, pianist Enrica Cavallo, as his accompanist. These are truly spectacular Read more recordings from an outstanding figure in 20th century classical music.
