Notes and Editorial Reviews
This CD is concerned with earlier works of Goffredo Petrassi (1904–2003) which outline the origins of the composer's musical identity. The Partita for Orchestra (1932) and the early Concerto per pianoforte e orchestra (1936–1939) are both works of bold, colorful orchestration and strong melodic contour. A piece from a few years later, the orchestral suite from the ballet La follia di Orlando (1945) is also featured. Anyone who enjoys the works of Casella, Kodaly, early Copland or Shostakovich will find these rarely heard Petrassi pieces of interest. Petrassi's works of this period make use of similar harmonies, rhythmic patterns and gestures without directly bringing to mind any of these composers. - Greg La Traille, ArkivMusic.com
