Description
Joshua Pierce performs Ottorino Respighi's rarely recorded Toccata for Piano and Orchestra with flair before introducing the first recording of Alfredo Casella's neo-Baroque Partita for Piano and Orchestra and finishing up with Rachmaninov's well-known Paganini Rhapsody.

"Not at all the expected neoclassical romp in brittle, tinkling 'concertina' style, its three movements (Sinfonia-Passacaglia-Burlesca), with their spiky, driving, polytonal modalism and allusions to Italian folk tunes, show Casella's forceful fluency in its strongest light: in fact, this may be among the best of the composer's many essays in the concertante idiom…. All three performances are extraordinarily well meshed: Pierce and Nanut work together like a team of well-trained thoroughbreds, and the Yugoslavian engineers supply a matchingly sharp, vibrant close-up acoustics. Highly recommended."—Fanfare
