Description: We’ve had the sonata once before (05M028), with Schumann's influence in its first-movement swings between impassioned heroism and lyrical introspection and a finale capricious in the style of Mendelssohn. La Ronde is Bazzini’s most famous virtuosic piece and the remaining items, some possibly new to disc, range between Schumannian Romanticism and French salon music. Luca Fanfoni (violin), Maria Semeraro (piano).
