Gino Gorini (1914-1989): Chamber works for strings and piano / Jessica Oddie & Kumiko Sakamoto, violins; Bridget Pasker, cello; Jakub Tchorzewski, piano

Notes & Reviews:

Pianist and composer Gino Gorini, a pupil of, amongst others, Gian Francesco Malipiero from 1934-40, was an inheritor of the monumental piano style of Busoni and Petri. + Gorini admired Busoni as a virtuoso but did not like his ardent expressiveness and disagreed with the personality cult aspect. + Gorini was a neoclassical pianist; his objective notion of performance, his anti-romantic attitude and his non-exhibitionistic virtuosity reflected Malipiero's ideas. There was no distinction between Gorini the performer and Gorini the composer: the two activities were interdependent.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
The recorded quality is excellent, and I hope these players continue working together. The quintet is particularly well played, but everything puts this composer across to good effect.
