Notes & Reviews:

The Italian pianist Sergio Fiorentino (1927–98) excelled in many areas of the repertoire, but he enjoyed an especially close affinity with the music of Robert Schumann. His effortless blend of a seemingly unimpeachable technique, a wonderful ability to sing a line, and a sense of strong but never overbearing characterization made him a natural for Schumann's highly strung emotionalism. Volume 6 of this retrospective offers four works, recorded over a mere two days in August 1965, which show Fiorentino equally at home in music as outwardly modest as the 'Arabeske, Op. 18' or the 'Kinderszenen, Op. 15' and in the more virtuosic 'Etudes symphoniques' or 'Carnaval'.
