With this project, Concerto Classics consolidates its commitment to the research of unpublished manuscript material preserved in the most important European libraries, proposing to the public the music of a great composer still little known: Pasquale Anfossi, one of the protagonists of the Neapolitan Musical School, whose name is strictly bonded to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The CD contains a selection of symphonies and overtures recorded in Prague with the prestigious Czech National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Alessandro Fabrizi.
