Of the composers who inaugurated the renaissance of Italian instrumental music in the late nineteenth century, Luigi Mancinelli is probably the least well-known. Older than Martucci, Respighi and Casella, he was in the vanguard of that creative resurgence. As a conductor he was admired by Wagner and Verdi, and as a composer he wrote music of sophistication and style, such as the colourful and touching Scene veneziane (Scenes of Venice). The music for Cleopatra shows why, in its increased complexity, Mancinelli was admired for his orchestral mastery.

“The music is colourful and, as you might expect, wonderfully well orchestrated...committed performances and a recording which is never less than adequate in these often heavily scored works...certainly worth exploring if you have a taste for the music of, say, Respighi or Boito.”
