Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Italian composer Riccardo Malipiero (1914 - 2003) was the nephew of Gian Francesco Malipiero. He was a pioneer of twelve-tone technique in Italy. His 6 published piano works encapsulate half-a-century of development, from the post-Respighian 14 variazioni (1938), to the classicism of Diario second (1985). This is the first-ever recording of this music.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Toccata continues its admirable mission to revive piano works by forgotten composers. The music is worth considering, as is anything that is shapely and well crafted. Ricardo Malpiero, who died in 2003, was a pioneer of Italian dodecaphony. The earlier Variations, Piccola Musica, and Inventions are more neoclassical and accessible. All the pieces, whether serial or not, have classical symmetries and striking ideas. Jose Raul Lopez plays this challenging.
