About

Francesco Molino rightfully belongs to the generation of musicians that, in the wave of the general renaissance in the age of the European revolutions, elevated the guitar to the status of concert instrument. After a military career and various experiences as violinist, violist and oboist, he arrived in Paris in 1818 and finally reached the role of guitar music composer and teacher: the rise of his fame is also testified by the famous dispute between his supporters against those of Ferdinando Carulli, as reported on a famous illustration of the time. This new album is mainly focused on Francesco Molino's chamber music legacy that the performers Luciano and Mauro Tortorelli manage to capture and deliver to us through the refined simplicity, delicacy and transparency that characterized and distinguished the composerís work from that of his contemporaries.
