Ildebrando Pizzetti (1880-1968) Does anybody have any of his choral music?
The only recordings I have are: the Messa di Requiem and the De Profundis, both on the same Hyperion disc as the Frank Martin Mass for double choir. (Interesting tale - both Pizzetti and Malipiero wrote a setting of Psalm 130, and dedicated their settings to each other when their friendship was repaired in 1937. I also have, in a boxed set called Virtuose Chormusik on EMI Electrola, his Tre composizioni corali.
It's beautiful stuff! Apparently Castelnuovo-Tedesco described Pizzetti as 'without doubt the greatest vocal polyphonist Italy has had since the glorious fifteen hundreds'.
(I guess some of you opera devotees may know something of his operas as well, so please feel free to recommend also...)
