About

Rota’s compositions for piano attest to Bach’s influential role in his music. In 1950 he wrote the Variations and Fugue in Twelve Tones on the Name of Bach, a work with a magnificent fugue consisting of a most highly chromatic structure posing a genuine challenge to the pianist and in every way equal to Max Reger’s complex works. The most ambitious work composed by Rota for solo piano is formed by the 15 Preludes. Here too motifs in chromatic ascent and descent already pervade the very first four preludes.
