Italian composer, teacher, and pianist Camillo Togni came from a wealthy family, and was thus able to pursue his art as he saw fit. He began studying piano at the age of 7. Eventually he received his diploma from the Conservatory of Parma. He was introduced to Arnold Schoenberg in 1938, which profoundly affected his compositional style and caused him to develop an interest in the Second Viennese School. In his later years he held positions at universities teaching contemporary music and composition. This release is a sampling of some of his finest works, including his Sonata for Flute and Piano (1954) which features flutist Severino Gazzelloni and the composer accompanying on piano. Also notable is the Live recording of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and soprano Dorothy Dorow performing Helian di Georg Trakl on June 6, 1962.
