Audio will be available later today.

Pianist Antonio Pompa-Baldi looks back a century to one of his Italian forebears, Giuseppe Martucci, who didn't compose much, because he was too busy conducting. Here's Martucci's Fantasia in G Minor, Op. 51. Pompa-Baldi also plays the Nocturne in C Major, Op. 54, No. 4, by Edvard Grieg. This performance comes from the Cliburn Concerts in Fort Worth, Texas.
