Description: You know those 8-15 minute fantasias on opera arias and/or popular tunes which piano virtuosi of the early Romantic period turned out in their hundreds? Well, that's what Mercadante has done here, only for the orchestra. Bellini, Rossini, the Neapolitan tarantella, two patriotic anthems and a popular Milanese song are the sources for orchestral fantasies; the clarinet concerto is Mozartian in its grace and elegance. Giammarco Casani (clarinet), Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma; Francesco La Vecchia.
