GUGLIELMO CAPPETTI (1875 - 1918)
Guglielmo Cappetti studied at Florence’s Institute of Music, graduating in clarinet (1891) and organ (1896). An esteemed soloist and conductor, he also taught at the C. Pollini Music Institute in Padua (1899–1901) and was one of the first Italian clarinettists to play with his upper teeth resting on the instrument’s mouthpiece. He wrote a number of attractive works for the instrument in a late-Romantic style, including the dreamy Notturno and the original and virtuosic Suite, both of which feature on this recording.
