Franco Donatoni: ‘Rima’ (1983)

I’ve listened to this piece several times in the last few days; I’m quite taken with it. Listen a few times yourself and it makes perfect sense. It’s also entertaining and beautiful in its own peculiar way. I’d like to see some superstar pianists take it up and play it on their recitals of Chopin, Liszt, Debussy et al. The composer, not incidentally, was a teacher of Esa-Pekka Salonen.
