It’s been suggested to me that the music of this Florence-born composer and pianist (1895-1968, he became a US citizen in 1946, having arrived in 1939) is today unfairly neglected. So, given his prolific output, including numerous Hollywood film scores, what follows is tip-of-the-iceberg stuff, and coincidentally they’re all Concertos.

Guitar Concerto, Opus 99; RCA recording by Kazuhito Yamashita & the London Philharmonic conducted by Leonard Slatkin. (The work’s first recording was made by Segovia.)

Violin Concerto No.2, Opus 66 (The Prophets), written for and recorded by Heifetz; here it’s the 1990 EMI version by Itzhak Perlman with Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic.

Cello Concerto, Opus 72, for Piatigorsky; played here by Brinton Averil Smith with Houston Symphony Orchestra & Kazuki Yamada; unspecified/undated recording.
