Catalogue Number: 02U031
Reference: TC 821980
Description: A rural upbringing in the Piedmont and a life shortened by liver cancer helped keep Rossaro unknown even in his own country. Wagner, Berlioz and Liszt seem to be behind his chamber works, all of which were published posthumously. These last 47 minutes; the second disc contains 11 settings of italian texts and four of Victor Hugo many of which are dark, dramatic and restless. 2 CDs. Texts available online. Alessandro Milani (violin), Sergio Patria (cello), Davide Botto (double bass), Anna Chierichetti (soprano), Riccardo Botta (tenor), Elena Ballario (piano).
