Performer Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Performances sound very good. Ruzicka, an able composer as well as conductor, paces the music coherently. Tenor Marius Vlad contributes a superb reading with good pitch and expressivity. His interpretation makes the best possible case for the music. From the notes, I gather Bentiou has also reworked Enesco's Symphony 4.

These two works by the Rumanian composer Enescu defy classification and exist only in particella form. During the 1990s Pascal Bentoiu completed them and instrumented them in such a way that he might well qualify for consideration as their coauthor. In Isis, a symphonic poem for female choir and orchestra, the euphonious female voices are integrated into the orchestra in the manner of instruments. Enescu's fifth symphony calls for a full complement of musicians lending it a powerful sound quality and is of folkloristic coloration.
