Paolo Restani's new recording effort, the result of a constant and very personal research work, guidesthe listener through various frameworks of piano literature, cornerstones of the history of music. Thealbum opens with two paraphrases of Liszt from Verdi: the first from Aida, Danza sacra e duetto finale S.436, and the second from Rigoletto, Paraphrase de Concert S. 434, concentrated on the wonderful quartetof Act IV, where the different moods of the protagonists intertwine. From the world of Verdi we move onto Wagner with the Solemn March to the Holy Grail from Act I of Parsifal. This journey into the dynamismof a fascinating universe of references and relationships ends with the performance of four Nocturnes byChopin (123and Nocturnes in C sharp min. Op. posth.) and, again by Chopin, the most famous of Polonaise,the Polonaise in A flat. Magg. Op. 53 "Heroique" from 1842, with it's extraordinary central section.A recording that allows you to rediscover musical jewels, entrusted to the wise mastery of Paolo Restani.
