Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Two full-sized sonatas from 1929 - that for violin a big piece, dark but not gloomy, rather dark like the majesty of Night and that for cello more contained and reserved but which achieves a surprising glow of transcendance in its finale - anchor a disc of occasional pieces which often exhibit folk influences, mostly from Pilati’s home Neapolitan region. 2 CDs. Francesco Manara (violin), Luca Signrini (celllo), Dario Candela (piano).
