Description: This first of two volumes contains youthful works from 1908-16, all world premiere recordings. Even though Ghedini was quite young, some of the characteristics of his mature years are present here: the influence of the Italian baroque is joined by a reverence for Bach (and even, although he denied it later, German Romanticism, especially in the 1913-14 Pezzi). His mature interest in tone color is present in the Canons of 1909-10 where counterpoint, color and lyricism blend in a strikingly individual voice. Short pieces, but not simple ones! Massimo Giuseppe Bianchi (piano).
