Description: This series reaches a peak with the Pièce (1906), whose title shows it to be a tribute to Franck; the massive, 19-minute Konzerstück of 1907, the only work in which Bossi attempted to use German style and in which he produced a monument of tortured Wagnerian chromaticism worthy of Reger; and the variegated pieces of 1910 - Leggenda, Corteggio Funebre, Scena pastorale, Hora mystica and Hora gaudiosa - which tend toward a lyrical Impressionism (one contemporary critic said that Ravel would be envious of the exquisite harmonies of the Hora mystica). Andrea Macinanti (Vegezzi-Bossi organ of Chiesa del Sacro Cuore, Cuneo).
