ILDEBRANDO PIZZETTI (1880-1968): String Quartets No. 1 in A and No. 2 in D.
Catalogue Number: 09N046
Description: "(Pizzetti's) position in twentieth-century Italian music is roughly parallel to Pfitzner's in Germany and these two string quartets trace a palpable curve of development from youthful over-effusiveness to a leaner, albeit even more expansive, 'second shot'... Pizzetti's quartets add significantly to the growing ranks of rediscovered late-romantic chamber music and the Second could well grace any imaginative programme of repertoire from the period." - Gramphone (April 1996). Lajtha Quartet. Original 1995 Marco Polo release.
