Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Although he is best known for his film scores and The Godfatherin particular, Nino Rota's concert music combines traditional tonality and forms with characteristically heartfelt melodies and appealing clarity. Contrasts abound in this selection of chamber works, from bassoon buffoonery in the Toccatato the Brahmsian eloquence of the Clarinet Sonata, and from the dramatic Improvviso and melancholy moods of the recently discovered Fantasia , to the jocular instrumental exchanges in the exquisite Trio .

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Most of the performances are superb. Kuo, Zelenka, Sweeney, and Kenedi all play with consummate professionalism and artistic commitment, infusing Rota's scores with color, wit, zest, and power. Gojevic's clarinetistry. He phrases nicely. Gojevic appears on half the program. If one can forgive the gulf between him and his excellent colleagues, this is worth a look.
