Podcast: Nino Rota’s works for solo piano. A magical melting pot.

January 17, 2020

ROTA, N.: Piano Solo Works (Complete), Vol. 1
Eleanor Hodgkinson
GP827

Raymond Bisha introduces this new release from the Grand Piano label. It’s the opening volume in what is to be the first complete series of recordings of Nino Rota’s works for solo piano, performed by Eleanor Hodgkinson. Nino Rota embraced neo-Classical, neo-Romantic and even neo-Baroque affiliations. His music prized melodic directness and communicative generosity, so it’s not surprising that he should be best-known for his 150-plus film scores, pre-eminently the music for The Godfather. The programme on this new release comprises three works: the 15 Preludes, Fantasia in G and 7 Pezzi Difficil per Bambini (7 Difficult Pieces for Children).
