Catalogue Number: 06R056
Description: Since four of these works were just offered last December (see 12R039 for an extensive blurb), we only need to tell you about the 15-minute sonata del Sud of 1944, inspired by the experience of saying goodbye to a sweetheart returning to her home in Puglia - an excuse for a sunny, folksy character with sudden changes of mood (the finale is titled “Fat and Drunk”!); and the four-minute allegro da concerto of 1946, a brilliant little piece written for a fellow pianist-composer. Daniele Adornetto (piano).
