Notes & Reviews:

This programme of four colourful, contrasting but complementary works for small orchestra celebrates the lighter side of four twentieth-century Italian composers, centring on Alfredo Casella's Divertimento for Fulvia, composed for his young daughter. Casella's friend Gian Francesco Malipiero wrote Oriente immaginario (Imaginary Orient) for a Futurist play by Achille Ricciardi (1884-1923). Franco Donatoni once called his simply-titled Musica (Music) 'kind of Schoenberg gone a bit neoclassical' - but also with a great sense of humour - while Giorgio Federico Ghedini's Concerto grosso is a twentieth-century tribute to both Bach and Beethoven.
