Notes & Reviews:

Although Giorgio Federico Ghedini's proud independence and lack of adherence to any particular school brought him into confl ict with the avant-garde, he is now increasingly recognised as one of the fi nest Italian composers of the 20th century. Marking the 50th anniversary of Ghedini's death, this recording reveals an aspect of his repertoire yet to be fully appreciated and is a signifi cant addition to the repertoire. Contemporary with those of Respighi, Pizzetti and Alfano, the Violin Sonatas display a real sense of creative freedom and are notable for their structural originality, beautiful harmonies and tonal and rhythmic invention. Ghedini's complete piano works can be heard on Naxos 8.572329 and 8.572330.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2013
Should these works enter the repertory, prospective performers will find themselves having to measure up to the Bianchi/Bernecoli duo's impassioned, technically polished and rhythmically rock-solid interpretations.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Ghedini studied in Bologna, began his professional life in Turin, and became the director of the Milan Conservatory in 1951. During his lifetime he was well known and well respected as an opera composer and a composer of instrumental music. The musicians on this recording are playing from the manuscript. Ghedini's 1918 Sonata in A is lyrical and tonal. It is written well for the violin. I certainly enjoyed listening the first time. The colors and the textures are lovely. I find Bizzarria (1929) and Due Poemi (1930) more interesting, and I find the E-flat Sonata (1922), the most memorable piece here. The playing is excellent, and it is very well recorded. I particularly enjoy the sound of the Fazioli piano.
