Mario Pilati: Sonata for Flute and Piano

Mario Pilati was among the great promises of Italian composers of the last century. In his Sonata there are many atmospheres with examples of typically impressionistic character with great attention to the teachings of Ravel and Debussy, but surely we also find a pinch of Gaubert. Melancholy is the prevailing character of this piece, with no show of pure virtuosity, but surely the two parts of flute and piano require performers able to express themselves with different colors and rhythmic precision. Definitely a piece out of the ordinary and of immense charm. The Riverberi editions have taken care of printing and layout with love (pity there is no information on the composer and on this piece)
