I am a great admirer of this composer, and am steadily collected all of his works, excluding vocal works. This disc with miniatures is fantastic.
It is drenched in melancholy and passion unashamedly much of it. And the way in which this is done borders on perfection. Even the composer thought this when writing about the performance:
To Andrea and Marco,
>Your performance and particularly your interpretation made an indelible impression on me. The breathing, the freedom, and the inspiration I heard are impossible to convey with the notes on the staff. I think that you managed to catch exactly what I could only dream of!<
And thus it is. It's a first recording too, so that makes it rather special. This is music you simply have to experience, it dives deep, and surfaces for a while in lightness and gaiety, then getting melancholy, and the notes float somewhere into your own personal impression.
Lucca Ricci made a beautiful recordings, so all around this is very recommendable.
