Architetture ('Architectures'), a concerto for orchestra in seven linked sections, was the piece that catapulted the Italian composer Giorgio Federico Ghedini to fame in his home country at the late age of 48. On this disc it is coupled with two more of his finest orchestral works. The powerful atmosphere and stunning orchestral effects of Marinaresca e baccanale ('Sea Piece and Bacchanale'), written several years earlier, prove that Ghedini's belated recognition was fully deserved. Contrappunti ('Counterpoints'), which Ghedini composed much later in life, finds him responding to the inspiration of one of his lifelong musical heroes, Beethoven. This is actually the first recording devoted in its entirety to Ghedini's orchestral works. Those of the Contrappunti and the Marinaresca e baccanale are first studio recordings and first stereo recordings.
