The name of Giulio Ricordi is best known as one of the most famous and prestigious music publishing houses of the world. Founded by his grandfather Giovanni, the firm gained great reputation under Giulio Ricordi’s leadership, notably by publishing Verdi’s operas.

Giulio not only had a good nose for quality music and commerce, but he was also a composer himself. This CD presents his works for piano 4-hands - salon music of high quality, very much 'en vogue' in that time. The titles of the pieces give a clear indication of the style: Carnaval vénitien, Le bal de la poupée, Le livre des Sérénades, Galop abracadabrant

Played with obvious enjoyment by the Duo Pianistico, Gabriella Morelli and Giancarlo Simonacci.
