2001 release. Pietro Scarpini was a founding modernist in Italy's pianistic traditions, one whose performance of Schönberg's Pierrot Lunaire astonished John Cage. His approach to music is guided by a deep probing intellect, finding a unique stylistic projection. A rare Italian tour by conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler featured Scarpini as the pianist in their legendary collaboration of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4, with the RAI Roma Orchestra. Beethoven's last sonata is also heard, from a previously unpublished radio program.
