“Muti’s handling of both scores is splendidly sonorous and, in the concerto, big-boned. It is hard to imagine the case for Martucci being more convincingly stated.” — Gramophone

Riccardo Muti leads the La Scala Philharmonic Orchestra and soloists Mirella Freni and Carlo Bruno in the music of Italian composer Giuseppe Martucci. Both works on this recording date from Martucci’s full maturity and show distinct sides of his talent — the concerto is boldly romantic and intensely Brahmsian, while La canzone dei ricordi is much more intimate and Italian.
