Camillo Togni loved the piano and fully understood the instrument's great potential for colour and virtuosity. This final volume in the series explores Togni's very first piano works, redolent of Chopin and Liszt, as well as pieces from his formative years of development. They include the Pezzo per pianoforte and the Fantasia a quattro voci e pedale where his use of chromaticism and contrapuntalism is vividly audible. His two cadenzas for the Mozart piano concertos reflect Togni's endless admiration for his erstwhile teacher, the great pianist Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli.
