Violin Concerto & "Romantic" Symphony - Garofalo (inter-war Italian composer , rec. 1999, CD)

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

By the eighties, and early-nineties, the name of the Italian inter-war composer, Carlo Garofalo, had been all but forgotten, by the classical music world. Born in 1886, in Rome, he studied composition, organ, and other disciplines. Like many of his national contemporaries, Garofalo directed his efforts mainly to composing sacred music for choir and organ.

Indeed, his Masses were performed in the principal cathedrals of Rome, Milan, Bergamo, and Monza, among others. However, Garofalo did leave a considerable body of work, that was composed in all secular music genres.

And the American conductor, Joel Spiegelman, brought back to life, in 1999, both the Violin Concerto - which shows Garofalo's gift for composing sweeping melodies, well-rounded musical form (not to mention the solo part, with violinist Sergei Stadler's virtuosic display and poignant lyricism) - and the "Romantic" Symphony, which was admired in its day by conducting legend, Arturo Toscanini.

Violin Concerto, by Garofalo (30:19) :-
1) I Allegro moderato 2) II Andante 3) III Molto sostenuto - Allegro quasi presto

"Romantic" Symphony, by Garofalo (40:08) :-
4) I Largo - Allegro moderato 5) II Andante 6) III Scherzo : Vivace 7) IV Finale : Molto sostenuto - Allegro non troppo - Molto sostenuto

The CD is in EX+ condition.
