Andrea Bressan Giovanni Guzzo

Bassoonist Andrea Bressan (Principal; Budapest Festival Orchestra) and violinist Giovanni Guzzo (Concertmaster; Camerata Salzburg & Guest Concertmaster; London Symphony Orchestra) have teamed up to record new - or never played - repertoire for bassoon and violin. Great friends and highly respected musicians, Andrea Bressan and Giovanni Guzzo play works from a specific geographical area and a specific historical period. Composers Niccolò Paganini and Alessandro Rolla were also good friends and played concerts as a Violino and Viola duo. There are only two recordings of the Tre Duetti Concertanti per violino e fagotto by Paganini, while Rolla’s Concertino a tre was never even recorded before! The idea behind including short pieces from Paganini’s Divertimenti Carnevaleschi is to alternate emotional moments and keep listeners active and involved throughout. Reflecting on playing Italian repertoire, Andrea Bressan tells us: “In many bars and moments of these compositions I found the sounds, the smells and the beautiful light of my country and of my sunny youth.”
