Long considered lost, the two entirely distinctive versions of Bruno Maderna’s strikingly expressive 1942 Piano Concerto here receive their premiere recording. Maderna was still immersed in the world of Bartok as a brilliant young graduate, and this influence is again strong in the more complex and intricate Concerto for two pianos and instruments. A comparison between these intensely individual early works and the mature large-scale masterpiece Quadrivium delivers new perspectives on one of the most influential composers of the 20th century.

The Guardian

“Quadrivium, for four percussionists and orchestra from 1969, is one of Maderna's best pieces, and it dominates this disc...But it's the vivid performance of Quadrivium conducted by Caerlo Miotto, that provides the reason for hearing this disc.”
