GHEDINI, G.F.: Piano Music (Complete), Vol. 2 (Bianchi)

This second of Naxos’s two-disc survey of Giorgio Federico Ghedini’s complete piano music includes his largest-scale work for solo piano, the 1922 Sonata, an intimate and harmonically complex piece which emphasizes pianistic colour. The Fantasia, Divertimento contrappuntistico and Capriccio are dazzling virtuoso showpieces while the Ricercare, a work of sorrowful and contemplative mystery that the composer began during Word War II, is notable for its spare, lean textures. The composer’s daughter, Maria Grazia Ghedini, writes of these recordings: “As I listened to these pieces being played by Massimo Giuseppe Bianchi, I was reminded of something my father once said: ‘This is my credo: music is not a passing fashion, it is everlasting…As society becomes ever more technical, there is a great need for genuine sentiment, which is why music too must be animated, at its core, by a dramatic, romantic impulse…only thus can all its magic be conveyed.’” Volume 1 is available on Naxos 8.572329.
