Description: Collectors of Italian serialism will be interested in this. Abandoning the neo-classical style he learned under Casella, Togni attended Darmstadt's Ferienkurse from 1950-55. These works date from 1950 to 1981 and chart a course from early dodecaphony still sometimes employing motifs derived from the row and elements of Schoenbergian expressionism to purer and purer reliance on absolute variation within an integral chromatic environment. Lorna Windsor (soprano), Ex Novo Ensemble.
