Alessandro Marangoni (piano)
Rossini's Peches de vieillesse or 'Sins of Old Age' is a series of thirteen volumes of piano works which were the main musical occupation of his last decade. The 24 pieces of Rossini's Volume Twelve are of breathtaking variety, including flavours from Bach and Chopin, opera and the music-hall. Some revel in witty dances and bravura pianistic display, and one was written overnight to help a friend out of financial debt. Alessandro Marangoni's playing 'sparkles and seduces over and over again' (Toronto Star on Volume 2, 8570766). This is the fifth volume in Naxos's ongoing series of Rossini's Complete Piano Music.
