Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s two Piano Concertos form a contrasting
pair. Concerto No. 1, written in 1927, is a vivid and witty example of his
romantic spirit, exquisite melodies and rich yet transparent orchestration.
Concerto No. 2, composed a decade later, is a darker, more dramatic
and virtuosic work. The deeply-felt and dreamlike slow movement and
passionate finale are tinged with bleak moments of somber agitation,
suggestive of unfolding tragic events with the imminent introduction of
the Fascist Racial Laws that led Castelnuovo-Tedesco to seek exile in
the USA in 1939. The Four Dances from ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’, part
of the composer’s recurring fascination for the art of Shakespeare, are
atmospheric, richly characterised and hugely enjoyable. This is their first
performance and recording. After winning national and international awards, Alessandro Marangoni
has appeared throughout Europe and America, as a soloist and as a
chamber musician, collaborating with some of Italy’s leading performers.
In 2007 he won the prestigious Amici di Milano International Prize for
Music. Andrew Mogrelia has had a varied career of concerts, recording
and work with major dance companies. He has an extensive discography
for Naxos/Marco Polo, with his complete Sleeping Beauty (8.550490-92)
acclaimed as a ?clear first choice' by Gramophone magazine.
