Released: 20 November 2020

An album of chamber works inspired by the beauty of Italy, including a work specially commissioned for the recording, celebrates the 20th birthday of the renowned Italian ensemble Quartetto di Cremona. Made possible by the Quartet’s 2019 Franco Buitoni Award, all four composers on the CD found inspiration on Italian visits. Following Wolf’s Italian Serenade and Mozart’s first string quartet (written in Lodi – hence its nickname – when he was 14), the new commission is Nimrod Borenstein’s Cieli d’Italia, followed by Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence, where the quartet is joined by violist Ori Kam and cellist Eckart Runge.
