Description: New and recent music for three pianos by composers from Turkey, Brazil, Spain and Italy. While exploring modern techniques the music is predominantly tonal, and remarkably light and clear-textured much of the time, though never facile or shallow. The composers have used the three keyboards to explore richer melodic lines and counterpoints while avoiding the temptation to create overwhelming walls of sound. The piece by Dallapicolla in particular is open-textured and quite traditional, predating his adoption of serialism. Zeynep Ucbasaran, Miguel Ortega Chavaldas, Sergio Gallo (pianos).
