Notes & Reviews:

Four Swiss composers are presented on this second volume of the series. The oldest, Aloys Fornerod was born in 1890 and the youngest, Laurent Mettraux, was born in 1970. Given inspired performances by the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, this recording should appeal to those who are interested in hearing unfamiliar composers' music.
