Francesca Dego releases a world premiere recording of three works by Italian composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, brought to light by Dego and the composer's granddaughter from his unpublished and unperformed works at the Library of Congress. The album features Castelnuovo-Tedesco's Ballade, written for and premiered by Tossy Spivakovsky in 1940, and the composer's violin paraphrases of operas by Rossini and Verdi as well as Stravinsky's Suite Italienne and Respighi's Violin Sonata in B minor.
