About

This new recording brings together the complete output for cello and piano by Giuseppe Martucci.

Martucci was one of the most important composers of the second half of the 19th century. His mostly instrumental oeuvre is based on the romantics Schumann and Brahms, but shines with a special golden Italian glow and sparkle.

The music is played with passion and command by two Italians of international reputation: cellist Roberto Trainini and pianist Massimiliano Ferrati.

The main work is the Cello Sonata, written when he was 24, but of a stunning maturity and 'gravitas', a masterwork in its genre, which deserves to be heard more often in today’s concert halls. Also included are the Tre Pezzi (3 pieces) which Martucci later transcribed for orchestra.
