Fasano: Chamber works by Rossini, Marcello, Cambini, Bonporti - Brunswick AXTL 1042
Jacket EX / LP EX / UK pressing
This beautiful LP from Brunswick (AXTL 1042, English Decca pressing, purple/silver label, mono) features a delightful collection of music by Italian composers played by the estimable Virtuosi di Roma under the direction of Renato Fasano. In the three of the works there are notable solo parts, in one case taken by the splendid pianist Ornella Puliti Santoliquido, leader of the Piano Trio that bore her name and that made several recordings of distinction for Concert Hall. Also of note is the contribution of Italian composer (and musicologist) Alfredo Casella, who executed the arrangment of the Rossini Sonata.
Included on the present disc are the following works:
Giachino Rossini: Sonata in C Major for Violin, Cello, and Double Bass (arranged by Casella)
Alessandro Marcello: Concerto in C minor for Oboe and Strings
> with Renato Zanfini (oboe)
Giovanni Giuseppe Cambini: Concerto in G Major for Piano and Strings
> with Ornella Puliti Santoliquido (piano)
Francesco Antonio Bonporti: Recitative for Violin and Strings
> with Guido Mozzato (violin)
The condition of the jacket is EXCELLENT++. There is slight edgewear and minor creasing, but that is all. There are no seamsplits, bends, owners' markings, or other defects and the whole remains bright, solid, and glossy – an excellent collector's copy.
The condition of the LP itself is EXCELLENT++/near-MINT. I suppose there are one or two minuscule 'sounds', but really this is a fine collector's copy. Only those requiring an absolutely flawless copy need hesitate.
