MARIO PILATI (1903-1938): Suite for Piano and Strings, Bagatelles for Piano, Books 1 and 2.
Catalogue Number: 11Q061
Reference: TC 901602
Description: While the 1925 suite was first recorded in 2002 by Marco Polo and reissued six years later on Naxos, the other 35 minutes on this disc contain music new to CD. Written in 1934 and 1935 the 11 Bagatelles are a sparkling, contrasting set of dances, a march, a lullaby and pieces which partake of both popular music of the 30s and of folk music with several pieces of a charming, earthy rusticity. Giovanni Nesi (piano), Orchestra Nazionale Artes; Andrea Vitello.
