This recording has the aim to create a short but signifi cant picture of Gian Carlo Menotti (Cadegliano-Viconago, 1911 Monte Carlo, 2007): he was an Italian composer then enstablished in the USA. Most of all he was known in Italy for his Spoleto's Festival dei Due Mondi, on the other hand he was very famous in USA for his very popular operas. The CD presents one of his most renowned operas, The Telephone, which is performed by a very extraordinary cast. The other side of his work, a more intimate and hidden one, consists of a chamber-music production, that here is represented by the Trio. At the end, some interesting and unreleased piano solo pieces, that close the tribute to this composer which in the past was quite ignored in Europe, due to avantgarde predominance - Menotti still remains a very interesting composer to discover.
