Lark Reviews, April 2017

I have to admit to knowing nothing of Luigi Legnani but these really are lovely works and so easy on the ear without ever being obviously populist. Working within the early part of the nineteenth century he was a friend of Rossini and both played and sang tenor as well as composing. He died almost forgotten in 1877 having composed 250 opus numbers plus a large number of unnumbered pieces, many of which are now lost. This recording should go a long way to restoring his name if only because it is a pleasure to listen to and beautifully crafted throughout. © 2017 Lark Reviews
