The famous Italian pianist and composer, Franco Mannino (April 24, 1924 – Palermo / February 1, 2005 – Rome), pupil of Renzo Silvestri, has made his debut already at the age of 16. Due to his outstanding skills and personality, he has been renown throughout Italy and Europe. Following World War II, Mannino was the first invited Italian pianist to perform in the USA where he has gained considerable and enthusiastic success.
After abandoning the piano, Franco Mannino started a brilliant career as a conductor appreciated enthusiastically in Italy and worldwide. He was appointed as the Art Director and Conductor at the National Art Center (NAC) in Ottawa between 1982 and 1986. In view of his major contribution to music, the Canadian Government organised “The Mannino Festival” as a tribute to the Maestro prior to his leaving Canada.

  1. Thank you for this rarity – actually, I’d never heard of the composer before! I can’t wait to listen to it, and report further.

  2. Side B gives out a number of electric-like scratches.
    The work could make an acceptable performance under a clever stage director, who would fully exploit its (skin-deep nevertheless) cinematographic qualities. Other than this, there is no substantial listening here whatsoever.
    Still, thank you for the rarity per se.
