Description: This disciple of twelve-tone technique, before he went totally over to it, wrote this 27-minute Serenata in 1940, a highly chromatic work with dense polyphonic textures which only rarely goes faster than Largamente and which creates a dreamy, phantasmagorical mood. His Bach transcriptions of 1949 are a "free re-elaboration" in the manner of Busoni. Aldo Orvieto (piano).
