Description: Although Pizzetti's war-shadowed sonata of 1918-19 with its turbulent, violent first movement, prayerful second movement and hopeful finale appeared twice in a few months in these pages back in 2010, there is no other recording available of his student's rather shorter (18 minutes here) sonata of 1929 which is characterized by a kind of lush impressionism or of the short but picturesque vocalises (1928) transcribed by Italian violinist Mario Corti. Hagai Shaham (violin), Arnon Erez (piano).
