    Thanks for posting, PetrB. I'm listening to the Serenata per violino concertante e piccola orchestra (1931) right now. I greatly enjoyed the II Mvt "Adagio e Siciliano" (maybe it's because I'm Sicilian ). Wonderful textures and a-la Schubert haunting mood to it (not saying that Schubert's got a patent on "haunting" music, of course).

    That second movement Adagio-Siciliano I think would work its charms on all but a block of granite.

    I'm very pleased you've found it to be as you've described. Check out the rest, too :-)

    Honestly I have never heard of him.

    I am listening now to his Marcia funebre per un uccelino for piano.

    I'd say he reminds me a bit of Satie.

    I enjoyed all of them, thanks. I like Concerto per clavicembalo e orchestra the most. The orchestra sound is mostly conventional, but when the clavicembalo enters, the mood abruptly changes. Very interesting. (BTW, the link under Partita also points to Concerto.)
