A portrait of Pablo de Sarasate, celebrated violin virtuoso of the secon half of the nineteenth century: a monographic collection of his music for violin and piano. Postcards from an exotic Spain, with enchanting melodies and French charm.
This album has been recorded in the “ Sala dell’Ermellino” in Milan, recently built close to "Leonardo's Vineyard", near the "Ultima cena". The perfect acoustics, cured by Andrea Farnetani, and the project by Arch. Elena Borghi have made this house of music unique, where Leonardo Da Vinci kept his "bottega", near the Duomo, where the great Flemish composer Joquin Desprez accompanied the marvellous singers of the cathedral.
