Notes and Editorial 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.
