Notes & Reviews:

This third volume of Malipiero's symphonies features the most widely played of all his Symphonies, the strikingly original Sixth ('for strings') from 1947. The adventurous, at times dissonant Fifth, with its concertante part for two pianos, juxtaposes chamber and orchestral textures. From the 1960s come the Eleventh ('of the bagpipes'), which features drone-like 'ostinati', and the colourfully scored Eighth ('Short Symphony').

”As with the previous volumes in this series, Almeida and the Moscow Symphony Orchestra shine. They and Naxos are to be commended for doing an important service to an all-but-forgotten composer. Recommended not just to those collecting the cycle, but to those who are intrigued by Italian instrumental music from the first half of the 20th century.”-Fanfare
