Francesco Cilea went into history as the composer of one opera, Adrienne Lecouvreur. However, this late romantic Italian left a fine oeuvre of solo piano music, which is presented completely on these two CDs. The piano works are wonderfully evocative character pieces, full of subtlety and finesse, in the style of early Debussy. One of the best pieces, Acque correnti, is a Ravelian study in sonority and instrumental glitter. Cilea’s works for piano four hands are also included in this comprehensive recording. Italian pianist Pier Paolo Vincenzi plays with great clarity and feeling for the atmosphere of these colorful piano pieces. He already recorded piano works by Wagner, and the Complete Variations on a Waltz by Diabelli for Brilliant Classics.
