About

One of the finest Italian composers of the 20th century, Giorgio Federico Ghedini was almost 35 when his Litanie alla Vergine received what he described as a ‘warm welcome from the public, unreserved praise from all the critics and musicians’.

Ghedini’s very individual orchestration of J. S. Bach’s Musical Offering, two movements of which were omitted from this live 1952 performance in Naples, is notable for its use of a variety of small, usually homogeneous groups from within the orchestra including two pianos but no horns.

L’Olmenata (The Elm Grove) of 1951 is a fascinating concerto for orchestra and two concertante cellos which represents two complementary herbs, the red Glaspi and the white Egusa. At the heart of the concerto lies a haunting, yearning, almost Mahlerian slow movement.

These, the only surviving recordings of Ghedini conducting his own music, are re-issued here for the first time in more than 50 years.
