Format: CD reissue
Description: Pilati's music is a of mixture of neo-classicism, post-impressionism and some of the more "modern" tendencies of the 20s and 30s. His love of the Baroque can be felt in the sunny and joyful immediacy of the Preludio, aria e tarantella. His other abiding passion was for the folk traditions of his native country, exemplified by his beautiful settings of the Quattro canzoni - light, elegant, and suffused with subtle humor - and the delightful Bagatelles.
