On his second Pentatone album Sogno, tenor Javier Camarena pays tribute to Francesco Paolo Tosti, together with pianist Angel Rodríguez. Camarena and Rodríguez have curated a collection of Tosti's songs that not only include some of his greatest hits but also highlight lesser-known works, including songs in French and English. The songs selected for this album give us an overview of the different facets of Tosti's style. Some are deeply sentimental, exemplified by 'Vorrei morire!' - one of the composer's most famous pieces - while others, such as 'Marechiare', draw inspiration from folk traditions. Although Tosti is not often remembered in the history of nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century music, Javier Camarena is inviting us to rediscover the enchanting world of his songs. Javier Camarena stands as one of the preeminent tenors of our time, and Sogno marks his second album following the successful Signor Gaetano (2022). Pianist Angel Rodríguez makes his Pentatone debut.
