Solo piano, c.4'30
Nonna mi l'ha detto (Nanna told me so).  The music builds on a theme suggestion nostalgia in the voice of a grandmother sharing her life story with her grandchild.  The restatements of motivic material are like reminiscences. These give way to a dance section modelled on the calata from in early Renaissance Italian lute music.  Here, as a coda to reminiscence, the calata implies the spontaneity of the child in taking Nonna's hand in a dance.

Recorded by Antonietta Loffredo in Childhood in Music (Wirr 042) available online.
