Notes and Editorial Reviews

Witold Lutoslawski’s few surviving apprentice works are suffused with the elegance of Ravel and the lush effusiveness of Szymanowski, and this is particularly true of the early Piano Sonata, heard here in Giorgio Koukl’s new and corrected edition based on the original manuscript. Further premieres include the wistful ‘A Kiss of Roxanne’ and the technically complex ‘Invention.’ Including all of the folk-music tinted pedagogical miniatures, works for piano four hands and other occasional pieces, this is the most comprehensive edition of Lutoslawski’s works for solo piano ever recorded. Virginia Rossetti began her piano studies with Massimiliano Ferrati, later attending the ‘Antonio Buzzola’ Conservatory in Adria where she graduated with Read more honors. In May 2013 she obtained her Master of Performing Arts with distinction at the Hochschule fur Musik in Basle and in 2014 at the Royal Flemish Conservatoire of Brussels. Since 2011 she has been the pianist of the Lunaire Piano Trio. Giorgio Koukl is a pianist/harpsichordist and composer. He studied at the State Music School and Conservatory, and the Conservatories of Zurich and Milan. Read less
