CAMILLO SIVORI (1815-1894): 12 Études-Caprices for Solo Violin, Op. 25, La Génoise for Violin and Piano, Folies espagnoles, Op. 29.
Catalogue Number: 06N048
Description: Two Sivori releases in three months?! This Paganini pupil's Études (lasting almost 45 minutes) combine grace and lyricism with exceptional digital difficulty. The other two works are world premiere recordings, with more bravura in La Génoise (an 18-minute Caprice) and the evocation of Iberian sights and sounds in a programmatic work from 1854 (the notes tell us what's going on at each step of this 17-minute work). Fulvio Luciani (violin), Massimiliano Motterle (piano).
