Until the early 20th Century, Italian instrumental music remained overshadowed by opera. However, a number of composers born around the middle of the 19th century wrote excellent suites for clarinet and piano which brokered a ‘compromise between tradition and modernity’. Alessandro Longo’s Suite imbues Classical form with ‘a passionate but never tormented or morbid Romanticism’, while that of Antonio Scontrino adds a dash of Debussyan impressionism. Giuseppe Frugatta’s splendid Suite paints a wideranging emotional soundscape rich in late Romantic influences; that of Busoni frames a lyrical Elegia with virtuosic outer movements.

Review By Maryse Dubé,,February 2010

L’occasion d’entendre de la clarinette en solo ou du moins, en avant plan n’est pas monnaie courante. Dans le jazz il y a les incontournables Sidney Bechet, Benny Goodman et Artie Shaw. Il y aussi la musique Klezmer dans laquelle la clarinette est l’instrument principal et dont la musique est magnifique. Mais pour entendre une sonorité différente de l’instrument, où se tourner? Dans le classique, et ce cd de la collection très abordable et de qualité Naxos est l’occasion d’entendre en duo le clarinettiste italien Sergio Bosi accompagné de Riccardo Bartoli, lui aussi italien, au piano.
