Quick Overview

An audiophile recording of some of Debussy’s favorite piano pieces + rare and unusual works by admirers of his musical idiom. Carlo Grante is one of today's most active and popular recording pianists and his concert repertoire, which has also contributed to the appreciation of lesser-known works, is one of the largest among contemporary pianists. His discography currently numbers more than fifty CDs, ranging from Domenico Scarlatti (the complete recording of the sonatas is underway inVienna—a project of about 40 CDs under the patronage of Bösendorfer and Paul and Eva Badura-Skoda), to Platti, Clementi, Liszt and Schumann, and to twentieth century composers such as Godowsky, Busoni and Sorabji. His recent record productions include works by Vlad (Opus Triplex) and Finnissy (Bachsche Nachdichtungen) dedicated to him and inspired by Bach and Busoni; the two concertos for piano and orchestra by Franz Schmidt with the Radio Orchestra of Leipzig (MDR Leipzig) conducted by Fabio Luisi; three concertos for piano and orchestra by Mozart with the Orchestra dell'Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome conducted by B. Sieberer, the Busoni Concerto, recorded live in Vienna with the Vienna Symphony under Fabio Luisi (not yet released); the three sonatas by Schumann (recorded in the Sala Santa Cecilia in Rome's Parco della Musica), as well as works by Godowsky, Rachmaninoff, Flynn, Bloch and Liszt.
