8.225118 - MALIPIERO: Tre Commedie Goldoniane / Stradivario / Gabrieliana
English 

The Italian composer and musicologist, Gian Francesco Malipiero led two very differing lives. On the one hand he dedicated himself to the creation of complete editions of music by the great Italian composers, Monteverdi and Vivaldi, while at the same time composing a large catalogue of music in a personal and distinctly 20th century style. Though largely self-taught, he was a composer in every genre, including a symphonic catalogue that contained eleven symphonies. The present disc reveals both sides of his personality, with two original and vivid orchestral scores, and two works in the style of composers from the 17th and 18th centuries that Malipiero dressed in modern orchestral colours.
