Notes & Reviews:
"He is the only other pianist," said the legendary Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli of Sergio Fiorentino (1927-1998). How is it that one of the greatest musical geniuses of the 20th century is still so unknown? The answer points to the self-effacing personality of the artist - Fiorentino was no career-hunter, lacked a big ego and were always focused on serving the music instead of him. This ten disc set presents the recordings Fiorentino made between 1994 and 1997 in the Siemens-villa in Berlin. It is a fitting tribute to the talent of this a great musical mind and formidable virtuoso. The set features works by Schumann, Liszt, Chopin, Schubert, Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, Scriabin and Bach.

His Bach playing is, as one would guess, gorgeously clear and ponderous.
