Volume 1 (of 4) of the complete piano music of the influential Italian composer, teacher and pianist Camillo Togni features both original works and transcriptions of Mahler and Bach. Togni’s fascination with the Second Viennese and Darmstadt Schools is evident in works that are notable not only for their fine craftmanship and technical brilliance but for their poetic depth and eloquence. Acclaimed soloist Aldo Orvieto’s Ex Novo Ensemble has also recorded Togni’s chamber works (Naxos 8.572074).
"...Orvieto plays all this music effortlessly and handles the stylistic variety with the same assurance..."
