A splendid Italian-American recital. Michelle Makarski, American violinist of Italian descent , explores the compositions of Dallapiccola, Petrassi and Berio - and American friends and contemporaries Carter and Rochberg - and relates them all to Tartini and the anonymous 14th century "Lamento di Tristano". The programme is highly imaginative; the playing is stunning.
