info

Even if Mercadante is mostly known as operas composer, the music of this collections witness not only the peculiar creative potential of the author but also his natural attitude to the instrumental genre. Infact we can place the "Variazioni in fa maggiore" (Variations in Fmajor) and the "Quartetto in mi bemolle maggiore" (quartet in E durmajor) in the composer's youth, whereas the two "Decimini" are part of his late production. As to the latter - along with their uniqueness asa form in instrumental music - the "Decimino con pianoforte" (the cd'sopening track) is a real rare issue. This cd is part of a Polimnia Ensemble trilogy dedicated to chamber music of great opera composers, along with compositions by Rossini and Donizetti already released with Musikstrasse.
