The real masterpiece here is the Quaderno musicale di Annalibera, a sequence of exquisite miniatures in which Dallapiccola effects a convincing stylistic rapprochement between Italianate lyricism and serial technique. Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s impressionist tone-paintings of the sea and the Florentine landscape are more conventional, though Mariaclara Monetti delivers them with plenty of atmosphere and considerable sensitivity.
