Description: Rinaldi spent his entire adult life in Genoa, a city not known for its musical profile. He wrote exclusively for the piano and nothing for it in the usual large-scale forms, preferring these small portraits mainly dedicated to nature, daily life, and simple emotions and feelings, illustrating an alternative cultural undergrowth that flourished in the shadow of European romanticism and the rampant Italian melodrama. 3 CDs. Dario Bonucelli (piano).
