The pianist Dino Ciani had a rich career, with breadth and diversity in his repertoire ranging from Beethoven to Bartok, including Schumann, Schubert, Chopin, Debussy… In addition to solo piano works, he was also noted playing the concerto repertoire through major concert halls in the United States and Europe, working with Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Muti, Sir John Barbirolli, and others.
Dr Gary Lemco, host of The Music Treasury, will review significant recordings from Ciani’s career, unfortunately cut short by his untimely death in his thirties. Included will be solo piano works by Schumann, Beethoven, Faure, Hummel, Debussy, and concluding with Beethoven’s first piano concerto. The show can be heard on 22 November 2017, between 19:00 and 21:00, PST. In addition to being a radio show, it is also presented as streaming broadcast: kzsulive.stanford.edu
