By Alberto Bolgni. By Carla Rebora, Federico Favali, Gabriel Senanes, Giuseppe Bruno, Peter Fribbins, Peter Seabourne, and Pietro Rigacci. Classical. CD. Naxos #SH184. Published by Naxos (NX.SH184).
Both intensely lyrical and impressively virtuosic, Alberto Bologni already has many recordings to his name. He has also given world premiere performances, as soloist or in chamber groups, of works by Castagnoli, Dall' Ongaro, Festa, Giusti, Landuzzi, Luporini, Morricone, Senanes, Solbiati, Zangelmi. This release presents works dedicated to, or premiered by him. Two well-established English composers are paired with three Italians and an Argentinian. Especially notable is the inclusion of Threads by Peter Seabourne, which was dedicated in part to Alberto Bologni. Together they create a kaleidoscopically diverse and enthralling cross section of possibilities, each realized impressively by the one-man orchestra that is Alberto Bologini!
