Beethoven Piano Concertos. Stradal Transcriptions. Scarlatti Sonatas Vol 2. Feinberg Piano Sonatas. Schoenberg Violin Concerto. Early Keyboard. Broadcast live by Italian RAI, Radio 3, the master tapes were retained by Fiorentino, from whose collection they have now been made available in splendid-sounding restorations. But RAI had elected for one recital per week and the programmes are reprinted in the generously illustrated booklet so that one can note how they differ from the track order.

The recitals were mixed, not running chronologically, culminating in the final concert that presented both sonatas and the Chopin variations in a great sweeping envoi. Whereas the discs are largely chronological by opus number though the third disc, of pieces without opus number and transcriptions, bisects the chronology.

Rhine confine both sonatas and both sets of variations Chopin and Corelli to the final two discs where they also offer some particularly exciting bonuses, of which more later. The richness of his chording and the romantic lyricism of his performances, added to individual elements in his phrasing, are the hallmarks of his playing. Then there is the approach to structure and tempo. Take the sonatas, for example. In October he recorded these in Siemensvilla in Berlin and the perspective in the first sonata is very different.

In the live Naples performance the impression is altogether more powerful and leonine, the sense of drama the more vivid. If pressed I would take Fiorentino on the wing in Naples. The Op. The two sets of Preludes offer a kaleidoscope of pleasure, whether march-driven or pellucid. If I had to single just one piece from the Opp 23 and 32 sets I would point to the coruscatingly dispatched Op.

Sensibly both sets occupy a single disc as do the two sets of Etudes-tableaux, Opp. They offer richly sonorous readings and, in the case of the variations, a vista into his sense of architectural purpose allied to tonal breadth and characterisation. The Chopin variations have considerable clarity as well as sizeable beauty and bravura.

The more compact - but more daunting - demands of the Corelli finds a similar clarity and nobility but also a sense of melancholy too. His handwritten manuscript is reproduced in the booklet, showing he wrote the transcription in August , bracketing the date with that of January As another bonus, the Concerto No. The conductor brings out some seldom encountered lines and colours, though never needlessly, preferring a watching approach.

Fiorentino is the eloquent soloist, noble, stoic and unflinching; not for him a whimsical deadpan ending. He is more emphatic; more Chaplin than Keaton.

This excellent package brings together a superbly realised cycle from a romantic lion of the keyboard. Donate and keep us afloat. Nimbus Podcast.

Sergio Fiorentino

Sergio Fiorentino 22 December — 22 August was a 20th-century Italian classical pianist whose sporadic performing career spanned five decades. There is quite a bit of footage his playing that survives, in addition to audio recordings. Recently, a complete concert recorded on video in has surfaced. The next year, however, while on tour in Argentina and Uruguay, he suffered a near-fatal plane accident, forcing him to cut back on concert performances. This led to him becoming a teacher at the Naples Conservatory of Music, where he had once been a student. In the late s he made a new start in concert performances, both in his native country and in England.
