Description: Malipiero (the nephew of ...) was one of the pioneers of twelve-tone technique in Italy but three of the six works here are neo-classical in style: the Variazioni of 1938 and Piccola musica of 1941 came before he turned to dodecaphonic music after the war (as did many other composers associated with the resistance and the political left in most countries) while the 1971 Rondini was a first-birthday tribute to his grandson in which tonal music seemed more apt. Of the others, the Bachian Invenzioni (1949) are the most approachable, the 1965 Costellazioni the most virtuosic and the late (1985) Diario reverting to a more classical organization and sound quality. José Raúl López (piano).
