Aldo Orvieto (piano)
WORLD PREMIERE RECORDINGS. Volume 1 (of 4) of the complete piano music of the influential Italian composer, teacher and pianist Camillo Togni features both original works and transcriptions of Mahler and Bach. Togni's fascination with the Second Viennese and Darmstadt Schools is evident in works that are notable not only for their fine craftsmanship and technical brilliance but for their poetic depth and eloquence. The acclaimed soloist Aldo Orvieto was born in Padua in 1961, studied in Venice and owes a great deal of his musical education to Aldo Ciccolini.
