Leonard Bernstein’s piano output reflects the various strands of his multifaceted personality, in works as different as Touches and, at the other end of the scale, his often tender, sentimental Anniversaries. Taken together his piano works form a musical diary tracing the breadth of his experiences and ideas. To play these works well requires an understanding of the various elements that made up the Bernstein persona. The Italian pianist Michele Tozzetti brings out the heartfelt tenderness of these tributes, the Jewish elements, and the dance rhythms.
