Notes & Reviews:

Long considered lost, the two entirely distinctive versions of Bruno Maderna's strikingly expressive 1942 Piano Concerto here receive their premiere recording. Maderna was still immersed in the world of Bartok as a brilliant young graduate, and this influence is again strong in the more complex and intricate Concerto for two pianos and instruments. A comparison between these intensely individual early works and the mature large-scale masterpiece Quadrivium delivers new perspectives on one of the most influential composers of the 20th century. Aldo Orvieto owes much of his musical development to Aldo Ciccolini. He has taken part in many world premières, in particular of works by Maderna, Togni, Clementi, Sciarrino and Ambrosini, and received praise from some of the greatest composers of our time, including Nono, Petrassi, Kagel and Bussotti.

"Quadrivium, for four percussionists and orchestra from 1969, is one of Maderna's best pieces, and it dominates this disc...But it's the vivid performance of Quadrivium conducted by Caerlo Miotto, that provides the reason for hearing this disc." -The Guardian

La Scena Musicale
pre-avantgarde and utterly charming. The 1969 Quadrivium gently flutters and meanders.
