The Chamber Works of Antonio Bazzini

October 5, 2007

The 19th century Italian composer and teacher Antonio Bazzini has two main claims to fame today: his oft-performed and oft-recorded sparkling encore piece, La ronde des lutins, and his position in the early 1880’s as Giacomo Puccini’s composition professor at the Milan Conservatory in Italy. During his lifetime Bazzini composed a considerable body of music, which includes chamber pieces, generally considered his finest works.

As part of Naxos' ongoing series devoted to 19th Century Virtuoso Violin Music, the young duo consisting of violinist Chloë Hanslip and pianist Caspar Frantz recorded several of Bazzini’s works for violin and piano, including Trois Morceaux en forme de sonate and Trois morceaux lyriques, in addition to the aforementioned La ronde. The recording sessions took place from 12 to 14 September 2007 at Potton Hall, UK, and were produced and engineered by Michael Ponder.

Chloë Hanslip has to date received fine reviews for her first Naxos album (8.559302), while Mr. Frantz makes his Naxos recording debut with this recording.
