Notes & Reviews:

The Calamus Ensemble has often surprised the world with music by rather unknown composers. These musicians now present us a sextet and a serenata for an octet of winds and strings by Luigi Gatti, an Italian composer from Lake Garda. The Calamus Ensemble was founded in 1985. After initial CD recordings with works by Danzi, Reicha, Salieri, Pleyel, Hindemith, and Ligeti, the musicians have performed in changing formations. In addition to their radio productions, they have recorded further CDs with chamber music by Andre Caplet and wind ensembles from quartets to sextets by Johann Georg Lickl on the MDG label.

"The program has just two works: a Serenade for oboe, bassoon, two horns, and string quartet in D major and the Sextet for English horn, bassoon, violin, viola, cello and double bass in E-flat. Both are lovely...the playing is very nice. Their phrasing is refined to the point that one doesn't notice that phrases have been crafted and sculpted. There is deliberation in the music but subtlety in phrasing. There is little emphasis on exaggerated style and interpretation for the sake of communicating an idea. These are good pieces and good performances."-American Record Guide
