Catalogue Number: 01V032
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: This 20-piece suite is a musical depiction of the fashionable masked balls frequented by the elite. The elaborate costumes, the dancing and, in particular, the interaction between two characters, one male and the other female are represented in the music. Each movement references different historical periods from the 12th to the 18th century and although largely romantic in style, the movements nod to their corresponding era with baroque inflections. 2 CDs. Duo Pianistico de Firenze.
