Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Italian composer and teacher Camillo Togni forged a creative musical path that was given decisive impetus through his exposure to the Second Viennese School, a process reflected in the youthful Serenade No. 1. This second of four volumes devoted to his complete piano music also shows how, in the Prima Partita Corale, Togni successfully absorbed Busoni’s ideas of Bach transcription. The result is a striking ‘free re-elaboration’. The Capriccios, meanwhile, explore the exciting and dramatic elements in Togni’s music. Volume 1 is available on Naxos 8.572990.
