Italian composer Camillo Togni was mainly a serialist who wrote in a compellingly expressive manner. I have no idea why he is so neglected; this is very fine material in a broad range of styles. © 2014 Fanfare

Fanfare, September 2014

Togni…gives us a beautifully constructed set of five of Bach’s organ chorales transcribed for solo piano. The three capriccios contain the wildest music of this recital…the brilliant color and excitement of the music offset the somewhat difficult harmonic language.

I find the music of Togni…to be compelling and even beautiful. Orvieto plays it with gusto and dedication, as well as delicacy when called for. © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review

David's Review Corner, April 2014

The second release in the complete piano works of Camillo Togni, one of Italy’s most progressive composers working in the second half of the Twentieth century. He embraced the brevity of Webern, the fourteen sections of the Quinto Capriccio lasting little over four minutes, the twenty-six sections of the first four works being no more than seventeen minutes. Yet in that space of time we have passed through so many very differing dispositions, many calling for virtuosity from the performer. Then we journey back to Bach for piano transcriptions of five organ chorales, the disc ending in 1940 with the Serenata. Certainly the much experienced Aldo Orvieto brings cogency to the most complex passages…Very good sound. © 2014 David’s Review Center
