 Update me on new releases by Ghedini

Giorgio Federico Ghedini (7/11/1892 - 3/25/1965)

‘Dear Giorgio,

Hot off the press: good news about the undisputed success of my Litanies last night. Warm welcome from the public, unreserved praise from all the critics and musicians. And an immediate request for two more performances later this month. How I wish you could have heard this enchanting work of mine! So transparent and pure and bright…’

The Italian composer Giorgio Federico Ghedini could never be accused of false modesty—but, writing to his lifelong friend Giorgio Negri after the happy première of his Litanie alla Vergine (Litanies to the Virgin Mary) in Bologna in 1927, Ghedini was clearly almost as surprised as he was proud. Success had been a long time coming. Ghedini was almost 35, and only just beginning to be recognised as a composer outside his home city, Turin. Three years later the Litanies became his first work to be played outside Italy, cementing its pivotal rôle in the career he was fighting to establish.
