Following the acclaim that has greeted each of her Odradek releases, Italian pianist Pina Napolitano brings her exceptional intellect and musicality to the works of Elliott Carter and, in his 250th anniversary year, Beethoven.Pina Napolitano is celebrated for her ability to find intricate connections between composers of different eras, as demonstrated in her previous release, ‘Brahms the Progressive’, in which she found the relationships between Brahms and the composers of the Second Viennese School.In ‘Tempo e Tempi’, Pina Napolitano traces patterns of connection between Carter and Beethoven, composers whose music exhibits both power and playfulness, combining taut structures with the freedom of fantasia.’Tempo e Tempi’ (Time and Times) takes its name from a poem by Eugenio Montale set to music by Carter in a song cycle of 1998-99. The poem encapsulates two central aspects of this album: the relationships between different superimposed musical times, independent but proportionally interrelated, so important to Carter’s music, and the relationship between historical times, which makes possible the ‘meeting’ between these two composers from different epochs.Like Carter, Beethoven combines the rigours of a strong structural background on this recording with elements of fantasy.

In “Tempo e Tempi”, Pina Napolitano traces connections between Carter and Beethoven, composers whose music exhibits both power and playfulness, combining taut structures with the freedom of fantasia. “Tempo e Tempi” takes its name from a poem by Eugenio Montale, set by Carter, that encapsulates two central aspects of the album: the relationships between different superimposed musical times, and the relationship between historical times, which makes possible the musical ‘meeting’ between these two composers from different epochs. Napolitano plays Carter’s Night Fantasies and Two Thoughts about the Piano alongside Beethoven’s Sonatas Opp. 110 and 111, as well as Jeffrey Mumford’s two Elliott Carter tributes.
