Notes & Reviews:

This recording tells a love story through a number of short but elegant compositions. Even small-scale works can be great in their own way and, compiled in such a creative manner and performed by such excellent musicians, they offer the listener an hour of sheer amazement and amusement. From Jacques Ibert's Divertissement for chamber orchestra (when the couple first meets), via Anton Heberle's Concerto in G major (the wedding music) through to Peter Heidrich's Variations on Happy Birthday (the happy ending and final celebration), the orchestra accompanies the couple not only when they indulge their love of tea during the honeymoon, but also adds music from all eras as a backdrop to their relationship.
