Notes & Reviews:

Prior to his breakthrough as an opera composer in 1872, Ponchielli (later a teacher of Puccini and Mascagni) was active in his home region of Lombardy as an organist and a conductor of the wind ensembles so very popular in everyday musical life. In addition to the music written for wind ensemble, the Ensemble Villa Musica, performing at its best, presents an arrangement of the famous "Danza delle ore" (Dance of the Hours) for wind nonet from the opera La Gioconda. The more than thirty CD recordings of the Ensemble Villa Musica on the MDG label have quite literally been showered with prizes and the highest international praise.
