Pizzicato (Luxembourg)

The Italian pianist Alfonso Soldano plays a highly entertaining program from Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco for Divine Art, including the ‘Notturno in Hollywood’ and, among other works, the Rhapsody ‘Alt-Wien’, the delicious Sonatine ‘Zoologica’ and the ‘Rapsodia Napolitana ‘. The interpretations seem very natural and balanced, leaving in the music the charm that characterizes it.
