Notes & Reviews:
The Amsterdam Sinfonietta is an ensemble with a repertoire extending from baroque to contemporary works. Walton's Sonata for Strings is a powerful composition, which gives the string orchestra the opportunity to display all of its discipline and tone color. The band's performance of the string orchestra version of Beethoven's string quartet Op. 135 is notable for its careful attention to the dynamic levels in the score and unique tone colors used for the various motives.
