In the nineteenth century, opera was king in Italy. But as the century ended, some composers began to write in other genres, producing chamber and orchestral music as well. Composers such as Giovanni Malipiero and Luigi Dallapiccola began to gain the attention of musical audiences.

On this week’s Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM 90.9, we will sample some of the 20th century Italian instrumental composers.
