Pizzini conducts Pizzini
Recorded 16th June 1955 and 22nd September 1956
Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, Carlo Alberto Pizzini
Italian composer Carlo Alberto Pizzini studied composition with
Ottorino Respighi. He wrote in almost every form, from chamber music
through music for choir, orchestra and band to incidental music for
theatre, television and films. As a conductor he gave concerts all over
the world, usually including his own compositions. This recording
features a number of Pizzini’s most important orchestral works. The
symphonic poem Al Piemonte was inspired by the history, the natural
beauty and the famously zealous work-ethic of the Piedmont region of
northern Italy, where the Roman-born Pizzini lived and worked for many
years. When Respighi saw his young pupil’s score for Il poema delle
Dolomiti he scribbled on it ‘Bravo!’, adding: ‘They’ll say to you what
they said to me at Carnegie Hall in New York after they played Pines of
Rome: ‘Compliments to you and to the roof!’ (because it had withstood
the huge battery of sound).
