Dallapiccola: a portrait

  • INFO

Luigi Dallapiccola is one of the most celebrated Italian composers of the twentieth century. This disc features chamber music and songs alongside his complete works for solo piano. Whether drawing on the music of the past to nourish the contrapuntal organisation of his own, or concentrating on the opportunities for gentle lyricism afforded by bell-like vocal and instrumental sonorities, Dallapiccola’s commitment to traditional expressive nuance has been seen by critics as a powerful aspect of his Italian insistence upon cantabilità – songfulness.

"a marriage of discipline and imagination of which Wilde is fully aware…[Nicola Stonehouse] is eloquence itself in the Goethe-Lieder"

"This is an expertly programmed and very finely performed selection. David Wilde is the motor and he displays a sure affinity with Dallapiccola sufficient to warrant admiration."
