Description: The second full disc this year of the unusual, sometimes bizzare concoctions of this Italian turned Londoner, whose pieces run the gamut of emotions and demand virtuosity both in loud and fast and soft and slow playing and who offers such Satiesque titles as "Allemande in Imitation of a Stutterer", "Ridiculous Aria" and "Movimento incognito" Gli Incogniti; Amandine Beyer (violin).
