Costantino Catena, the Italian virtuoso pianist who has recorded a great number of superb performances for Camerata label and other music labels, performed with Quartetto Savinio who have been critically acclaimed since their formation in Naples in 2000, to record Schumann’s chamber music pieces in Chiesa di San Giorgio in Salerno, Italy, known to be a stunning Baroque church.
