Apart from a few vocal works and some chamber music, little of Guido Alberto Fano's output has been released on CD, and his music is largely unknown outside Italy. The two works for piano on Pietro De Maria's 2016 release on Brilliant Classics are late-Romantic in flavor and virtuosic in technique, which is to be expected when one considers Fano's reputation as a pianist. The Sonata in E major (1895-1899) is rather conventional in its four-movement form and dramatic style, with more than a few reminders of Schumann and Brahms scattered about, though it frequently erupts with extremely difficult passages worthy of Liszt. The Quattro Fantasie (1896), which consists of evocative character pieces, offers a sample of Fano's lyrical side, strongly influenced by his teacher, Giuseppe Martucci. While these early pieces don't reflect the direction Fano was to take in the next decade, with experiments in tonality and a growing interest in writing orchestral works under the influence of Richard Strauss, they are highly accessible and make an appealing introduction to this unjustly neglected composer. De Maria's performances are muscular and sparkling by turns, and his connection to Fano's music is apparent in these live recordings from 2013.

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.

Jorge Bolet, the Epitome of Franz Liszt

Franz Liszt’s music re-emerged in the early 1980’s and for once it was played in a way that was both poetic and lyrical, rather than simply getting the notes out. Jorge Bolet recorded a ground-breaking anthology of the Hungarian composer for DECCA, as well as other recordings for the Spanish label ENSAYO, for RCA in the 1970’s, for EVEREST in 1960, and studio and radio recordings in the 1950’s.
