Allegro danzante
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Born in Egypt, the Italian Vittorio Rieti studied with Respighi. He went to the USA in 1940 and settled in New York. The delightful and sparkling Allegro danzante breaks the spirit of mourning created by Whithorne’s piece. Neoclassical in style, one can hear echoes of Scarlatti in this dance. Rieti’s frequent pianistic punctuations played in octaves by both hands also remind the listener of Paderewski’s own Caprice from his Humoresques de concert, Op 14.
