Notes and Editorial Reviews

The period 1940-44 covered in this fourth volume of the piano music of the progressive and fiercely independent Italian composer Camillo Togni saw him rethinking elements of twelve-tone technique, chromatic harmonies and lyrical impulses. The result was a unique synthesis of competing styles reflected in the inner diary of his Serenatas, of which three are heard here. The imposing Serenata No. 2, Op. 11 is a complex nocturne and the companion works are both meditative and lively. His fondness for the music of Casella is reflected in the Baroque-tinged Suite, Op. 14a whilst Busoni haunts the attractive Quattro Pezzi, Op. 22.
