GOFFREDO PETRASSI (1904-2003): Piano Concerto, Partita, For Solo Piano: Toccata, 8 Invenzioni.
Catalogue Number: 04P070
Description: We've had the concerto just last month (03P011) and Partita (04O009) last April, both on Naxos, but the Invenzioni, from 1942/44, are not otherwise available. Lasting 23 minutes, these pieces alternate between a Bachian neo-classicism and modernism in the vein of Prokofiev, Shostakovich and the French Impressionists and represent the major part of Petrassi's total œuvre for solo piano. Pietro Massa (piano), Göttingen Symphony Orchestra; Christoph-Matthias Müller.
