Description: Monza's keyboard music was passed off by unscrupulous publishers as by Pergolesi and you'll hear two of the pieces selected by Stravinsky in 1912 for his Pulcinella music in this collection of stylistically heterogenous pieces which stress texture, brilliance of invention and graceful melody over old-fashioned counterpoint. Terence Charlston (harpsichord).
