Notes & Reviews:

John Rea scored a sensational success with his adaptation of Alban Berg's Wozzeck for chamber ensemble, and now this Canadian composer and highly knowledgeable arranger is back. His ensemble version of Berg's Three Orchestral Pieces op. 6 commissioned by the Musikkollegium Winterthur extracts nuanced tonal levels from the magnificent original score in what is an amazing feat of his own! Pierre-Alain Monot and his Winterthur colleagues have recorded these pieces and a version of Berg's famous Violin Concerto reduced to the smallest ensemble dimensions by Andreas Tarkmann for MDG. The concertmaster Rahel Cunz is the solo violinist, and Bndicte Tauran is a Marie torn between love, grief, and vanity.

The MDG sound engineers have captured the Winterthur premiere of John Rea's arrangement of the Orchestral Pieces in lavish 3-D technique. The carefully produced Super Audio CD 2+2+2 recording enables the listener to participate directly in this memorable event - a document of historical value - and more!
