Marco Enrico Bossi (1861-1925)
Complete Four-Hands Piano Works
This CD includes the world premiere recording of Marco Enrico Bossi complete works for piano four hands. Marco Enrico Bossi, the greatest organist of his time, was a great teacher, highly inspired composer, appreciated Director of Conservatories of Venice, Bologna and Rome, great conductor, he played the violin and was an excellent pianist. As shown and evident in the seven waltz of the Suite de Valses op. 93 and the transcription of the magnificent Suite for Large Orchestra op. 126, while maintaining an original mark, Bossi compositions for four hands seem to be inspired by Brahms and by the Hamburg chamber music transplanted in Vienna. Borganti and Giurato have used original editions and manuscripts, revising and correcting them even by comparing the transcriptions to the scores for orchestra.
