After intensive archival research, Pietro Massa discovered a copy of Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s previously ‘lost’ second piano concerto. The first European performance was given in the Berlin Philharmonie.

This double disc set couples the piano concertos with other rare piano works, whereas other titles often couple these works with Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s symphonic repertoire.

Reviews:

"Patchily distinctive melody and lush, colourful orchestration are Castelnuovo-Tedesco's strongest cards, harnessed to some daunting challenges for the soloist. Pietro Massa rises to these superbly...while demonstrating a keenly sensitive touch in the two central Romanzas." - Gramophone Magazine
