Andrea Noferini (cello)
Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma
Francesco La Vecchia, conductor

The foremost Italian orchestral composer of the late nineteenth century, as well as an accomplished pianist and conductor, Giuseppe Martucci was one of the first of a line of composers, which included Sgambati, Mancinelli and Faccio and, later, Casella, Malipiero, Respighi and Pizzetti, who were determined to break away from opera’s dominance in Italian musical life.

If his First Symphony is stylistically indebted to Schumann and Brahms, these models are never slavishly imitated. This is an unusually wide-ranging Symphony for its time (1895), with its own individual voice, distinctive lyrical gift and keen sense of fantasy.

2009 marks the centenary of the death of Giuseppe Martucci.
