The Nuovo Quartetto Pianistico Italiano proposes a vast original literature rediscovered in important European libraries and antique book shops and transcriptions for two pianos at eight hands, which ranges from emblematic examples of 'musique de salon' to spectacular transcriptions of symphonic works. Numerous fantasies on themes from operas have also been included. Contemporary music, also, has been given particular importance: both Italian and foreign composers have written pieces especially for the quartet. The considerable dynamic and rhythmical potential which distinguishes this group has inspired contemporary composers in the creation of their themes. The romantic repertoire of the Nuovo Quartetto Pianistico Italiano also includes compositions of particular musicological interest, reminiscent of the nineteenth-century traditions of Schubert, Rossini and great piano schools.
