Carlo Aonzo and Elena Buttiero - Fantasia Poetica

Carlo Aonzo and Elena Buttiero - Fantasia Poetica

Fantasia Poetica is a new recording by Carlo Aonzo (mandolin) and Elena Buttiero (piano), continuing their quest in presenting the original historical repertoire for mandolin they began with The Eighteenth-Century Mandolin, released in 2008.

On this new colection, the duo presents works by Beethoven, Munier, Calace and Bruzzone.

From the project notes:

With the so-called "Romantic mandolin," we are presented with a challenge in determining its historical demarcations. Beethoven, with his original compositions for the instrument, represents an important link between the Baroque style (characterized by the use of the basso continuo) and the Romantic. Many composers, such as Carlo Munier, Raffaele Calace, as well as the more recent Demo Bruzzone, found expressive inspiration in the Romantic style.

In support of the project's release, Carlo and Elena will be on tour in the United States during March and April, 2010. An extended listing of all concert dates is maintained on Carlo's MySpace web site.
