Towards the end of the nineteenth century, after the centuries-old monopoly of melodrama, a renaissance of instrumental music was witnessed in Italy, thanks to a generation of composers who would lead Italian musical culture from the backward isolation into which it had gradually fallen to a full insertion into the European context, with a peculiarity of intentions and happiness of achievements that made one speak, as in the past, of the Italian school or, at least, of the Italian way of understanding music in modernity, the ramifications and influences of which continue in a certain way to this day. This disc, dedicated to M° Giuseppe Garbarino, is intended to offer a particular perspective of this lush instrumental flowering, if not complete, at any rate indicative of the various tendencies that have come down to us.
