Stephen Estep
American Record Guide, March 2019

Marco Enrico Bossi (1861-1925), a student of Ponchielli, was an organist and composer. He wrote in a conservative, restrained romantic style influenced by Brahms. James Harrington describe d his four-hand piano music as “pleasant but lightweight” (Tactus 862706, S/O2015); Carl Bauman spoke better of his piano trios (Hungaroton 32293, N/D 2005). I won’t disagree that this chamber music is pleasant but lightweight, but it is still finely composed and affectionately played. It is wonderful for background music or for casual listening when you just need something gentle and refreshing but still intelligent. © 2019 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Roberto Giaccaglia exhibits a gloriously spacious and expansive sound both eloquent and commanding. He wraps the disc up with a charming character piece, Menuet et Musette which Bossi suggested could be played equally effectively on the cello, horn and viola, but here sounds absolutely ideally suited to the bassoon.

The recording is enough to make this fascinating collection of unusual chamber music from an unusual source well worth seeking out. © 2018 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Records International, November 2018

The Italian organ composer par excellence has loads of fun with a kaleidoscopic variety of instrumental timbres in this enjoyable 65 minutes of salon-style stuff. © 2018 Records International
