Notes & Reviews:

Sunday Times
Russell Davies gives both pieces with the intensity they demand, the sound of the Stuttgart Kammerorchester warm and heard in a generously resonant acoustic.

The Independent
Bringing together three Bart=k suites with the funeral music composed in his memory by his admirer Witold Lutoslawski, Dennis Russell Davies here offers convincing confirmation of the former's influence on the latter. The "Romanian Folk Dances" are by turns impishly ebullient and wistfully nostalgic.

Dennic Russell Davies has had a long-running and highly productive association with the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra - documented on exceptional ECM recordings of repertoire from Mozart to Kancheli - and is currently the orchestra's Conductor Laureate. Here he leads them through spirited performances of Bartok's "Divertimento", "Romanian Folk Dances" and "Seven Songs" (on which the orchestra is joined by the Hungarian Radio Children's Choir.) This selection of lively Bartok pieces is viewed through the prism of Wittold Lutosalwaski's "Musique funebre", written in memory of the great Hungarian composer, and first performed on the 10th anniversary of Bartok's death. It's an important, and moving, piece (and one also led to international recognition for Lutoslawski).
