Guido Alberto Fano (1875-1961)
Silvio Omizzolo (1905-1991)
Works for cello and piano and for piano solo
Two fantastic performers - Rocco Filippini and Andrea Bacchetti - here offer to us a compelling interpretation of rare works from the historical Italian Novecento by Guido Alberto Fano, pianist, composer, conductor and favorite pupil of Giuseppe Martucci, and by Silvio Omizzolo, esteemed pianist and composer appreciated by some greats such as Gian Francesco Malipiero, Luigi Dallapiccola and Giorgio Federico Ghedini. Both of them belong to that group of musicians that, together with the Cecilian movement and further to the Generation of the eighties concurred to the rebirth of the Italian instrumental music and diffusion of the European symphonic and chamber repertoire that in the early twentieth century still found it hard to receive the deserved attention. This chamber music CD gives us a perfect glimpse of a moment in history that still remains little known while revealing unsuspected musical gems.
