Description

Genius of Dino Ciani on CD

Described as 'miraculously gifted' by Alfred Cortot, Dino Ciani was a contemporary of Maurizio Pollini. Born in Croatia in 1941, he died aged just 32 in a car crash in Rome in 1974, robbing the world of one of the great pianists of the late 20th century. He had a remarkable rise to fame, and was offered a Deutsche Grammophon contract. His repertoire centered on Beethoven, Bartók, Brahms, Debussy, Chopin, Liszt, Mozart, Schumann, Schubert and Weber. He also explored lesser-known areas of the repertoire, making pioneering recordings of Hummel and Kozeluch. As a pianist he divided opinions, but with supporter such as Cortot, and the support of conductors of the caliber of Abbado, Muti, Barbirolli, Guilini and Gui, his reputation is assured. Like many artists who die young he became a cult figure for some. He can now be judged for what he was; in the words of Cortot 'one of the most remarkable examples of the rarest talents one could hope to find'.
