Notes & Reviews:

The Franco-Lebanese composer and poet Bechara El-Khoury is a master of orchestration, and defines his artistic credo as that of "setting to music nature and its passions." This third Naxos disc of his orchestral works features the Piano Concerto, which evolves rhapsodically in a succession of contrasting sections, the lyrical 'Meditation poetique' and two Poems for piano and orchestra, each inspired by the music of the Maronite, Catholic and Byzantine churches in Lebanon, heard during the composer's youth.
