As pianist and musicologist Alfonso Alberti writes in the liner notes, “in the evolution of musical language, Barber finds a niche in which we can still say something in a certain way which others consider dead and buried; he does not look ahead as Cowell or Ives (and still less Cage), do simply because he has other objectives”. This new CD includes the Concerto per pianoforte e orchestra, perhaps the culminating point in Barber’s career (the piece won the composer his second Pulitzer Prize), written for the pianist John Browning and the Boston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Erich Leinsdorf, and the Three Essays for orchestra. The first, dated 1937, and linked, chronologically and historically, to the famous Adagio was proposed to Arturo Toscanini for the first performance; the second was completed in 1942 and conducted for the first time by Bruno Walter; the third was written in 1978 and is typified by a particular crepuscular atmosphere and sparer writing, without giving up a charming melodic nature. The skilful pianist Giampaolo Nuti, already known for his recordings dedicated to Schnittke, Busoni and Berio, appears with Daniel Kawka and the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI. Gramophone MagazineMarch 2011 Nuti has a fine technique...The performances are all reliable and the CD is a welcome centenary tribute from Italy to a composer who had so many rewarding connections with that country throughout his life.
