Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review
, August 2014
Early Modernism fascinates me greatly in any event. It was a period of liberation and discovery. The creative energy released by opening up the harmonic, rhythmic and structural-melodic floodgates was real and filled with potential.
Malipiero responded with some very original piano music, of which we have five sets on the recording, two enjoying their first recordings, incredibly.
…as this album attests, he had a marvelous way of writing music that was quite pianistic, memorable and supremely musical without requiring superhuman pyrotechnical skills.
Rira Lim gives us a Malipiero…with real artistry.
Highly recommended. © 2014 Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review Read complete review
