Ugo Amendola

Ugo Amendola (1917-1995) was an Italian pianist, conductor and composer based in Venice. He served at the faculty of Benedetto Marcello Conservatory of Music and in 1973-1985 was its director. His works include 7 piano sonatas, 2 partitas, piano concerto and many others, mainly unpublished, pieces.

Roman Palester

Roman Palester (1907-1989) belongs to the group of the most important, yet forgotten,
Polish composers of the 20th Century. In 1940s he was described as Karol Szymanowski's successor, but after his escape to the West in 1950s, his name was removed from all Polish publications. His output include 2 piano sonatas, variations and several cycles of miniatures.

Sandor Veress

Sandor Veress (1907-1992) is considered to be one of the most significant Hungarian composers of the generation following Bartók and Kodály. Since his life was not only marked by the wars and catastrophes of his century, but also by the solitude of an artist, who consequently went the way he felt committed to, his work is only now beginning to receive the acclaim it deserves.
