5.0 out of 5 stars Two neglected great post-romantic works 16 April 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Who has ever heard of Carlo Garofalo? His obscurity extends to most of the music encyclopaedias which make no mention of him. He was born in Rome 1886 and died in 1962. He was a deeply religious man and a fine organist. In 1910 he went to Boston USA as organist at the Immaculate Conception Cathedral but was homesick and after two years returned to Rome. Most of his compositions were of sacred music including several Masses, but he also produced a sizeable amount of secular music. His Romantic Symphony was premiered in 1915 in St Louis but because of many unfortunate circumstances, and despite the interest of Toscanini and Nikisch, it seems never to have been performed again in its entirety until a Mosscow performance in 1994 when it caused quite a stir. During the Mussolini years Garofalo found it difficult to get any of his music performed because he was known to be such an opponent of Il Duce and his Fascists. It may be easily imagined that this did his career no good at all. He was even accused of treason by the director of the Rome Conservatory. So Garofalo opted to live in obscurity until after the end of the war. It also seems to be the sad case that Ottorino Respighi was jealous of Garofalo and saw in him a rival as a composer of orchestral music and as a result Respighi intrigued against him. The violin concerto was written in 1927 inspired by the child prodigy Yehudi Menuhin who never played the work but wrote in 1993 that he remembered reading the score and found it "most melodic and ingratiating". The concerto was not premiered until 1942 by Italian violinist Remy Principe.

The neglect of this lovely concerto is nothing short of a disgrace.
