We are pleased to wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with our Christmas 2017 release: An Italian Xmas. The composers presented here were not only born at opposite ends of seventeenth-eighteenth century Europe, but were familiar with one another’s homelands after their journeying in the flesh, in research, or at any rate in the spirit. The Christmas theme is the Leitmotif which unifies all the milestones of this fantastic music voyage.
The compositions recorded in this album are other important works belonging to the sacred music repertoire by Andrea Luchesi: the Offertorium “Ave Maria” in D Major, for solo, four part choir, orchestra and basso continuo, the “Requiem” and the “Dies Irae”, all preserved in handwritten score and parts in Modena at the Library Estense (F. 661) in the section of sacred music....
Girolamo Frescobaldi (1583-1643) is without doubt the most influential figure in the field of harpsichord in the first half of the seventeenth century.
Harpsichord and organ, thanks to the large compositive legacy that the composer from Ferrara delivered to the press, evolve until they became different tools to use and purpose. The great independence from the schemes and the flair of style are the distinguishing features ...
Live recording of some of the young Mozart’s masterpieces, brilliantly performed by soloists Domenico Nordio (violin) and Danilo Rossi (viola) with the Ensemble Respighi directed by M° Federico Ferri.

Our new September release wants to honor an importat composer from Orchestral music of the XIX century during his 150th Anniversary: Ferruccio Busoni.
Busoni and Trieste – the city to which the pianist and composer, native of Empoli and adopted by Berlin, is chromosomally linked, is celebrated here in concert and brought to life in this disk.
The concert took place on 1st April 2016, on the occasion of the 150th Birthday of Busoni, with the Trieste Chamber Orchestra and Chloe Mun, the young winner of the Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition in 2015, at the piano.
World premiere recording by Andrea Luchesi, the mysterious composer from Motta di Livenza who met the young Mozart and could have been the unknown ‘Maestro’ of the young Beethoven.
Orchestral and choir music from XVIII century performed by Nuova Orchestra da Camera Ferruccio Busoni, Coro della Cappella Civica di Trieste
Massimo Belli (conductor), Roberto Brisotto (choir conductor), Laura Antonaz (soprano), Elena Biscuola (mezzosoprano), Luca Dordolo (tenor) and Matteo Bellotto (baritone).
Marianism is the fil rouge that unites the world famous compositions presented in this CD. From the Stabat Mater by Pergolesi through the Nisi Dominus and the Sinfonia ‘Al Santo Sepolcro’ by Antonio Vivaldi, it is the Virgin’s lament that guides the two composers in the realization of what are among their most renown and heart felt works.
The term ‘musical journey’ has certainly been used since ancient times, one may think of the exquisite reports of Charles Burney, who travelled through Europe in the 1700s reporting his impressions and collecting manuscripts.
This recording of Ensemble Chiaroscuro sees a very authentic and original concert programme, a journey through time and space. From Dario Castello’s stil modern, rich in enthusiasm and exploration, to the eighteenth-century sonatas that are the culmination of that research. A ...
In nearly two decades of life, the Concerto Classics label has only made a few recordings of today’s music. With this CD we make an important exception presenting young composer Marco Nodari, who you may recognize from our catalogue from his previously recorded guitar piece (Tiliguerta in CD: Strong Emotions on contemporary classical guitar, CD Concerto 2055). Marco’s musical world in rich in influence from the twentieth century, minimalist, but firmly anchored to the Italian tradition. It is presented here on a monographic CD. Enjoy!
An extraordinary musical journey leads us from Montiverdi’s Mantova to Strozzi’s Venice, from Corelli’s Roma to Martini’s Bologna. From Italy we are then transported to England, the home of Purcell and Händel (who both took influence from the Italian and French models), exploring the very different styles of madrigals, cantatas and opera alongside the concerto grosso, symphonies and dance music. The common theme is the sublime human expression: crying for love. In the 1600s the ‘lament’, developed into its very own genre just as Dido’s Lament in Dido and Aeneas by Henry Purcell. This tormented adventure is accompanied by exceptional ...
