The futurists noisily proclaimed their message in Italy prior to the outbreak of World War I. Manifesto followed on manifesto, every form of violence, including war, was glorified, and anarchism, misogyny, and the destruction of everything representing tradition was preached.

A few composers were also among their ranks, but Steffen Schleiermacher’s latest discovery demonstrates that their works sometimes contrasted greatly with the literary pamphlets issued by this group. Steffan Schleiermacher continues his extraordinary recordings for MDG with this new CD.

Futurism includes works by: Francesco Balilla Pratella (1880-1955); Gian Francesco Malipiero (1882-1972); Alberto Savinio (1891-1952); Alfredo Casella (1883-1947) and Silvio Mix (1900-1927).

Schleiermacher performs these works on the legendary “Manfred Bürki” Steinway concert grand piano from 1901 and Schleiermacher’s unerring feeling for fine nuances guarantee that tonal refinement gets its fair share along with all these surprising finds.
