Notes and Editorial Reviews

As one of the leading Italian composers of the twentieth century, Bruno Bettinelli occupies a significant place in his country’s musical lineage. An inheritor of the traditions o fRespighi, Casella, and their contemporaries, he employed contemporary techniques to fashion music of structural clarity, inventiveness and considerable communicative power. The Improvvisazione and Due movimenti are two of his greatest smaller-scaled works, and the Trio a masterful embodiment of his musical principles. Bettinelli’s complete works for solo guitar, performed by Davide Ficco, can be heard on Naxos as well.
