Usually ships within 1-3 days
Following the success of the previous three volumes in Naxos's Martucci Orchestral Edition, the fourth presents the Italian composer's Piano Concerto No. 2, a spaciously Romantic work whose sweeping opening movement reaches a dramatic climax, setting the scene for a poignant Larghetto and a highly virtuosic finale.
The best known of Martucci's later works, it made a considerable impression internationally when conducted by Anton Rubinstein, Toscanini, Weingartner and Mahler, often with the pianist-composer as soloist.
