In the work Le Rossiniane Rossini’s melodic ideas are combined with Giuliani’s virtuosity: a very strong combination for the 19th century. That is why it stands to reason that the two single recordings of Le Rossiniane, which were released on ARTS some years ago (a world premiere at that time), attracted great attention. Particularly because this music is played by a master of guitar: Frédéric Zigante.

In the year 1995, during the Expomusica in Pesaro/Italy, these recordings were honored with the award „Best Recording for Guitar“, the German magazine FonoForum recommended them as “Highly vitrtuosic 'Rossiniane'“ and Seicorde wrote: „Great CDs..... an overwhelming interpretation“.

We now put these two highly acclaimed recordings together for you in a beautiful collectors box. Let yourself be overwhelmed by the music.

15 Questions to Frederic Zigante

Complete editions are Frederic Zigante's specialty: He recorded all of Nicolo Paganini's guitar works, the entire guitar catalogue of Villa-Lobos, as well as the cosmos of Mauro Giuliani's "Le Rossiniane" (only recently re-released as a double disc box set on ARTS). Behind this desire for integrity hides no pathologically prolific mind, but a man who searches for profundity and who wants to use the power of interpretation to the good. The latter implies that Zigante eschews (or may we even say "despises") the modern-day tendency to submit a Classical works to the arbitrariness of subjectivity, to change it, alter it or even leave out certain passages for more easy digestability.......

"One can thus get lost completely in these renditions, which are rich in their melodic, harmonic and rhythmic inventiveness and dramatic in the grandness of their design... Zigante has kept a certain airness, a breath of light heartness... He also manages to flood the notes with the rays of light"
