Fantaisies (14) sur les operas de Verdi


Angelo Cavallo (cornet)
Michele Fontana (piano)


Jean-Baptiste Arban (1825-1889) was a French cornetist, conductor, composer, pedagogue and the first famed virtuoso of the cornet ŗ piston or valved cornet. He was influenced by NiccolÚ Paganiniís virtuosic technique, and his famous method book for trumpet continues to be the first choice for all students of trumpet, cornet and other brass instruments in music schools. His most famous works for the cornet are 14 Fantasies on Verdiís Operas, recorded here for the first time by the cornetist Angelo Cavallo and the pianist Michele Fontana. They are brilliant, highly effective pieces, in which the most popular themes of Verdiís operas are masterfully interwoven with great instrumental virtuosity.
