This release of the complete published chamber music stands as a vibrant testament to a future curtailed of a composer described by Petrassi in a letter to Casella, Salviucci’s teacher and mentor, as ‘il migliore di noi tutti’ (‘the best of us all’). Mostly world premiere recordings and first stereo recording of the Chamber Symphony.
