Tim Adrianson - Dello Joio Salute to Scarlatti: Message Board

Tim Adrianson's Comments

Norman Dello Joio first "breakthrough" piano piece, which clearly established his mature style, was his Sonata No 3, written in 1947. To my ear, he never changed much after that, and his Salute to Scarlatti, written in the early '80's, is a good example of his craft. It is infused with warmth, wit, and charm, even amidst some pungent dissonances. He was often singled out for being "too" accessible and obvious, but I've always found his efforts unfailingly winning.

Sorry about omitting 3 -- I couldn't get the cross-hand relationships secure enough for my satisfaction, and so just elected to skip it.
