Info for Togni: Works for Flute



Camillo Togni stands as one of the most representative figures of 20th-century Italian music. His uncompromisingly independent creativity can be defined as the quest to strike a balance between exacting formal coherence and the broadest imaginative freedom, while composing with extraordinary craftsmanship. Togni was inspired to write numerous works for his friend the acclaimed flautist Roberto Fabbriciani, a musician as close as any to this composer’s complex, mysterious and deeply poetic musical language.

„Eight years ago, Naxos drew attention to Camillo Togni, a pianist and composer who devoted much of his life to the advancement of contemporary music in Italy. Born in 1922, he had a comprehensive University education outside of music, but from the age of seven, he studied the piano, the legendary Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli among his mentors. In his later teenage years, he began to take an interest in composition, and subsequently looked for educational guidance in that sphere. He had come of a wealthy parentage, and his independent means took away the pressure to be a ‘commercial’ success, his scores ranging from the solo pieces heard on this disc, to orchestral works and two operas. One of his influences was the flautist Severino Gazzelloni, who premiered several of his works including the Flute Sonata and Fantasia concertante. Latterly another Italian flautist, and the soloist on this disc, Roberto Fabbriciani, has been responsible for the premieres. Dedicated to atonality through much of his creative life, he has been linked with Luigi Nono as being in the vanguard of experimentalist music in Italy. The disc opens with the Three Preludes from 1975 that explores most of the possibilities open to the instrument. Two further movements were added and Togni created the Five Pieces for flute and guitar, though the guitar only appears in the two added movements. Turn the clock back to 1953, and there is a semblence of melodic material in the Sonata for flute and piano contained in three brief movements. There is one brief track Per Maila from 1982, where Togni embraces tonality, but the Fantasia concertante for flute and string orchestra really is a child of the Second Viennese School. The recordings date from 1980 to the present time, and given good quality sound, as we hear in the Three Preludes, we can enjoy the beautiful sound we know that Fabbriciani produces.“ (David Denton, David’s Review Corner)
