Catalogue Number: 03U023
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Rolla is especially known for his viola works which are kind of a missing link between the idioms of Tartini and Paganini and its use in the vocal work is rather unusual; the symphony is short and infused with a Rossinian verve. Simonide Braconi (viola), Salvo Vitale (bass), “Il Demetrio” Chamber Orchestra; Maurizio Schiavo.
