20Th Century Italian Piano Music
A substantial anthology of piano music written by Italian composers in the 20th century.

This set offers a fascinating overview of piano works by Martucci, Cilea, Busoni, Sinigaglia, Caetani, Fano, Respighi, Pizzetti, Casella, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Dallapiccola, Rota, Malipiero, Castiglioni and Einaudi.
Performances by leading Italian pianists such as Sandro Ivo Bartoli, Michelangelo Carbonara, Pietro de Maria, Alessandra Ammara, Michele d’Ambrosio and others.
