This previously unpublished opus of Carlo Rossaros work has been deposited with the Library of the Conservatory of Music in Torino Italy. Elena Ballario, pianist, composer and teacher at the Conservatory has re-evaluated the work and is promoting it with the aim of honouring this great Piemontese composer and bringing his repertoire of chamber and piano music to lovers of classical music in concert halls everywhere. Rossaro was a fervent admirer of Wagner and was fundamental in bringing meaning to the turmoil of an expanding cultural world in the Torino of his time. This double CD includes the premiere recording of the complete chamber music (both vocal and instrumental) by Rossaro, a talented musician that in 1848 was named 'honorary pianist of the King' Vittorio Emanuele. He was published by Ricordi till 1863, and also by Giudici and Strada of Torino, Bock&Bote of Berlin and Seuff of Leipzig. Even if some of the works included in this double CD are written by composers of uncertain origin, their mature style suggests the work of Rossaro in his later years.
