Malipiero - The Symphonies Volume 1


Sinfonia del mare

Symphony No. 3 'delle campane'

Symphony No. 4 'in memoriam'

Gian Francesco Malipiero may be considered the most original and inventive of the generation of Italian composers born around 1880 (the so-called “generazione dell’Ottanta”). At the heart of Symphony No. 4 “in memoriam” [Natalie Koussevitzky] lies the eloquent slow movement, surely the most beautiful of any Malipiero symphony.

“The performances by the Moscow Symphony are decent, if not over-refined; Antonio de Almeida's conducting, though, projects a fervent belief in the music's lasting value.”

MusicWeb International

“Based on this first volume of Symphonies, I believe that listeners will be pleasantly surprised at what appears to be a great symphonic cycle that is just waiting to be (re)discovered…. the playing by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra and their conductor Antonio de Almeida is stimulating. To my mind, they are great advocates of Malipiero’s music. The programme notes by John C.G. Waterhouse are informative, well written and essential reading.”
