Notes & Reviews:

Adalberto Maria Riva studied at the Milan Conservatory and the Lausanne Conservatory. He is the winner of several national and international prizes and has toured Europe and North America.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Riva plays a good-sounding Bosendorfer piano (much is made of the instrument in the booklet) that he pounds with his right hand sometimes in climaxes. It's a mixed bag and I am most impressed with Fornerod and Blanchet. These are all first recordings.
