Notes & Reviews:

All six of these orchestral works exemplify Busoni's personalized classicism. The Lustspiel ouvertüre (Comedy Overture) is light, and almost Mozartian in clarity, whilst Gesang vom Reigen der Geister (Song of the Spirit Dance) is a delicately scored chamber piece, forward-looking in both style and content. Both the Concertino for Clarinet and the Flute Divertimento reveal Busoni's affinity for solo instruments; the former is deftly organized and the latter more obviously capricious. The spirit of Johann Strauss II haunts the infectious Tanzwalzer and the Rondò arlecchinesco unleashes Busoni's broadsides of wit. In 2002 Francesco La Vecchia was appointed Artistic Director and Resident Conductor of the Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma. Under his leadership the orchestra has rapidly achieved success in Europe and in highly successful tours to St Petersburg, Madrid, Belgrade, Brussels, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, London, Athens, Berlin, Beijing and Shanghai.

The Guardian, July 2012
This very well played selection of rarely heard orchestral works moves chronologically through Busoni's career...As so often with Busoni, the mix of styles is baffling.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
The works are in chronological order, so a listener can follow Busoni's stylistic development without having to recue all the tracks. It always annoys me when recordings throw the music onto a record in any order except a logical one. A record company owner told me there's no reason for that other than indifference. The performances are expansive, with strong conducting. Even though these pieces use average or smaller forces, they all sound symphonic in scope.
