“These 10 piano pieces written between 1915 and 1941 will appeal to performers, students, and audiences...The musical language is freely tonal with excursions into modality, and primarily diatonic and linear in conception. Strong melodies contribute to the beauty of these works. Most are character pieces--slow, expressive and short...'Epitaffio' by Malipeiro is hauntingly beautiful.”--American Music Teacher
