Bazzini : Scherzo fantastique Op.25, 'La ronde des lutins' - Charlie Siem
Antonio Bazzini had the fortune of being encourged by Paganini becoming, at an early age, one of the foremost violinists of his time.
At about the age of 45 he devoted himself expressly to composition and scored a number of chamber pieces unlike his former famous operatic fantasy "La ronde des lutins, Elegie". Bazzini composed operas, cantatas, overtures, and symphonic poems. The chamber works rmained his compositional forte. ~ Keith Johnson, Rovi
