Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
These performers make a good case for the music, playing it with sensitivity of phrasing and dramatic life and lyricism by turns. This is a worthy project well recorded.

The Italian Michele Esposito's (1855-1929) professional life was spent mostly in Ireland where he was a respected and hugely influential figure. An active chamber musician, he was also a talented conductor - so much so that, in 1897/98, in Moscow, he gave the Moscow premiere of Mussorgsky's Khovanschina and the world premiere of Rimsky-Korsakov's Sadko. He also conducted the LSO when it visited Ireland in 1913/14. His music, including the works recorded here, evoke the late-romantic style.
