Mandolin Charm II Following the release of 'Mandolino e Violino in Italia' cpo are now releasing 'Mandolino e Fortepiano' with the acclaimed mandolin virtuoso Anna Torge, who 'inspires fascination above all with her surprisingly cantabile, most finely articulated, melodically and harmonically intelligent playing, as is extremely rarely the case on a plucked instrument' Neue Musikzeitung, June 2018. A mandolin with four courses is used for the selection of works heard on this CD. The elegant and sensitive sound of the instrument was produced with gut, copper, and silver-plated strings plucked with a quill or plectrum made of bark. In 1804 Johann Nepomuk Hummel composed his festive and graceful Grand Sonata, which today may be regarded as the last great work of what is known as the classical zenith of the mandolin. The Sonata by Gabriele Leone will transport listeners to the sound world of the gallant, sensitive style and demonstrate the highly developed performance artistry of this period. The mandolin’s association with the network of Europe’s noble families led to its dissemination and popularity in all the countries of the Continent. For example, the National Library in Lisbon contains in its holdings Sonatas for Mandolin and Piano by the Portuguese composer Porto Feliziano. Even the young Beethoven, attracted to the beauty and charming mandolin playing of Comtesse Josefine ClaryAldringen, wrote ravishing works for mandolin and keyboard.
