About

Leone Sinigaglia was a Jewish composer born in Turin on 14 August 1868; he died there on 16 May 1944 of a syncope, in front of the military force that had come to arrest him in the Ospedale Mauriziano, where he had sought shelter from Nazi-Fascist persecution. During the period of his education in his native town, Sinigaglia often stayed in Milan, where he struck up important friendships with Antonio Bazzini, and with his pupils Alfredo Catalani and Giacomo Puccini. Bazzini urged him to travel to Europe to complete his training with the great names of the era. One such name, Brahms, recognized the value of Sinigaglia, and directed him to Eusebius Mandyczewski, teacher of great fame and professor of composition at the Vienna Conservatory. From these years in Vienna comes the great masterpiece by Sinigaglia: the Concerto for violin and orchestra included in this prestigious live performance by the rising star that is Laura Marzadori, first violinist of La Scala in Milan. The CD includes two pieces for cello and orchestra performed by the refined soloist Fernando Caida Greco, and the delicate orchestral piece Regenlied. Marco Zuccarini leads with great confidence the Città di Ferrara Orchestra in this live concert organized by the 'Comitato dei grandi Maestri'.
