Rossini review in the June issue of Musica journal – 5 stars

Excellent musicians give voice to the instrumental fantasies of Rossini with clarity of phrasing and clear dynamics: the pianists Marco Sollini and Salvatore Barbatano are very effective in their ‘accompanying roles’ as a duo; violinist Francesco Manara has generous phrasing; clarinetist Fabrizio Meloni skillfully creates a flavour for the varied and whimsical in Rossini’s Fantaisie for clarinet and piano; cellist Massimo Polidori has beautiful cantabile playing even in the high register; and horn player Danilo Ponds sound is expressive while spontaneously agile.” “…you can’t not welcome this impeccable performance by excellent musicians who confirm that Italy truly is a nation with artists of excellence.”
