GHEDINI Violin and Piano Music (Complete)

“Should these works enter the repertory, prospective performers will find themselves having to measure up to the Bianchi/Bernecoli duo's impassioned, technically polished and rhythmically rock-solid interpretations.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2013

“Both interpreters are sworn by hundred percent on each other and play devotedly, with gripping expressiveness in the more introspective as well as in the fervently virtuoso movements. A convincing plea in favor of a repertoire deserving to be discovered.” --Pizzicato, October 2013

Although Giorgio Federico Ghedini’s proud independence and lack of adherence to any particular school brought him into confl ict with the avant-garde, he is now increasingly recognised as one of the fi nest Italian composers of the 20th century. Marking the 50th anniversary of Ghedini’s death, this recording reveals an aspect of his repertoire yet to be fully appreciated and is a signifi cant addition to the repertoire. Contemporary with those of Respighi, Pizzetti and Alfano, the Violin Sonatas display a real sense of creative freedom and are notable for their structural originality, beautiful harmonies and tonal and rhythmic invention. Ghedini’s complete piano works can be heard on Naxos 8.572329 and 8.572330.
