Giovanni Sgambati was one of the most important figures in the Renaissance of Italian instrumental music that began in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Wagner arranged the publication of his first chamber works, calling him ‘a true, great and original talent’. Sgambati’s blending of Italianate lyricism and German rigour led to large-scale works of real historical significance. His overture Cola di Rienzo exemplifies his richness of characterisation while the First Symphony is a major statement of breadth and intensity, admired by Grieg and Saint-Saëns, and often conducted by Toscanini.

Review By Brian Reinhart,MusicWeb International,March 2014

…the symphony is terrific and completely enjoyable. Cola di Rienzo is certainly fun too…this is some of the Rome Symphony Orchestra’s best playing in the series so far, especially from those brass players. The performances are as infectious as the music. © 2014 MusicWeb International Read complete review
