Modest rewards 3 May 2010
By G.D. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Mario Pilati (1903-1938) was a minor figure in Italian music life for his short life. Stylistically, the music is steeped in neo-classicism, but of a particular brand heavily influenced by verismo - the kind you can also find in, say, Rossellini, Pizzini, Porrino and, to a lesser degree, in Alfano. Which is to say that there is a certain neo-classical element to the music, especially in terms of form and structure, but that the contents, emotions and colors are pure verismo - in Pilati's case with strong influences from folk music pasted onto it. In general, this is easily tuneful, innocent music, modestly charming and utterly dated. It is certainly not horrible music, but stuff like this needs good tunes, at the very least, and Pilati didn't have any. At least one would expect some fine coloration from the scoring, but even here this music seems to fall short - it is relatively gray and heavyhanded throughout.

I don't really have any qualms about the performances, although I suspect they could have benefited from somewhat livelier tempos at times. The Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra deserves some recognition for their ability to deal with a huge amount of unfamiliar music, and also for their stamina when it comes to relatively monochrome, boring music such as Pilati's generally is - I cannot really blame them for the fact that the performances sometimes sound workmanlike rather than inspired (but they are generally more than adequate). The sound quality is relatively good, but all in all the rewards to be gained from this release are modest indeed.
