These mainly world première recordings of five of Malipiero’s most characteristic works fill an important gap in the catalogue. The Impressioni dal vero (Impressions from Life) express the composer’s feelings amid nature and Italian rural life, from three particularly beautiful evocations of birds, to the wild tarantella danced on the island of Capri. The first of the two highly contrasted pieces with the typically enigmatic title Pause del silenzio (Breaks in Silence) is widely regarded as the greatest orchestral work Malipiero ever wrote.
