These four songs on Lombard texts of a folkloric derivation, called Ariette Dolenti , include Cenere fredda, Due lacrime dal cielo, Nessuno più ricorda, Storia di un pioppo. The easy vocal writing and the more complex treatment of the piano part have two goals: to consent the voice an easy intonation that serves as a preparation for non-tonal melodies, and to allow for concert performance, also thanks to a pianistic accompaniment of appreciable density.
