Product Notes

This release is dedicated to arrangements of Frescobaldi's music, with each composition bearing the hallmarks of it's transcriber's distinct style. In addition to offerings by Respighi, Bauer and Feinberg, the disc features Reicha's 36 Fugues pour le Pianoforte; a work that pays homage to the early-Baroque composer through it's use of the composer's Recercar Chromatico. The same theme also appears in Ligeti's Omaggio a Girolamo Frescobaldi, a modern interpretation using the twelve-tone scale, and the compilation extends it's twentieth-century focus through the inclusion of Bartόk, a composer who, during his years as a touring concert pianist, acquired the Torchi edition of Frescobaldi's works while on a trip to Italy. In his fourth recording for Brilliant Classics, Sandro Ivo Bartoli a leading interpreter of early-20th-century music, hailed as one of the most exciting pianists of his generation, casts a new perspective on the Italian genius's works and shows the extent to which his music produced a legacy that permeated the Classical period and beyond. A worthy and original addendum to the Brilliant Classics Frescobaldi discography, recorded on 29 & 30 June 2012, Church of San Pantaleone, Piev a Elici, Italy. Italian Sandro Ivo Bartoli, a pianist of colossal technical powers, specializes in rare and innovative repertoire, his Brilliant Classics recordings of Respighi Piano Concerto, the immense Fantasia Contrappuntistica by Busoni, a pianistic tour de force and the Liszt/Busoni arrangements brought him great critical acclaim in the international press, resulting in 5 star reviews.
