Fantasia Tragica/ Notte di Tempesta/ Burlesca/ Preludio - Ferrara (mid-20C Italian composer & conductor, CD)

£5.99

Product description

Seemingly born to be a musician, Franco Ferrara spent his formative years in Palermo, surrounded by its Art Nouveau architecture. He started his musical studies at a very early age, also entertaining his family with little, self-composed piano sonatas and marches, written at the age of five !

From the Palermo Conservatory, he moved to Bologna, with his family in tow ... the family would witness thier son, now a young prodigy, graduate in both, violinn and piano, studies.

By 1925, he was touring the cities of Italy. It was during his time, as a violinist in the Teatro di Bologna house orchestra, that he would encounter many of the era's great Italian conductors, among them Antonio Guarnieri, Gino Marinuzzi, and even, Arturo Toscanini himself. He soon moved on up, to join the status of such men. That career in conducting, however, did not stop Ferrara from composing some stirring works, of international renown.

1) Preludio (7:54) 2) Fantasia tragica (13:55) 3) Notte di tempesta (14:47) 4) Burlesca (10:05)

The CD is in EX+ condition.
