Luigi Amodio – La Scala Virtuoso

Luigi Amodio – La Scala Virtuoso


The distinctive warm, rich sound that characterises Luigi Amodio’s playing is captured on these recordings. Carefully restored by Clarinet and Saxophone’s historical specialist Malcolm McMillan, author of a full and informative booklet enhanced by Luigi Amodio’s son Luciano who added a special insight to his father’s life. With family photographs generously made available for inclusion within the booklet, this is an invaluable legacy from a past-master.


An significant historical recording featuring the playing of clarinettist Luigi Amodio

These recordings give a rare insight into the solo playing of Luigi Amodio. Known principally for his playing in La Scala Opera Orchestra under Arturo Toscanini. He travelled widely and played with all the major string quartets. Amodio produced nearly all his solo discs from just before the start of World War 2 until 1942 when his early death from cancer cut short his flourishing career. A testament to a great player. 

This valuable disc includes:

  • Beethoven’s masterful Clarinet Trio Op. 11
  • Brahms Sonata No.1 Op.120. The first European recording
  • Mozart Quintet in A K.581


‘…a disc of great historical interest, and a fitting tribute to an artist well worth remembering.’
