Description: The titles above disguise music with a Lisztian flair and difficulty as Rendano, having studied in Paris and Leipzig, and a virtuoso pianist with a significant career, was no backwater paisan writing salon trifles. Chopin is a reference in the dance-music but the Barcarola is a nine-minute mini symphonic poem and the Gavottes and Nocturnes could have come from several more famous northern European composers. Stefano Severini (piano).
