orchestral music -
'Very pleasurable and committed performances.'
This two CD set of contemporary orchestral music from composers around the world is beautifully performed by the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Mikel Toms.
The composers represented here are all masters of orchestral writing, and whilst the music will create a challenge for many listeners as it does not have many 'tunes' in the traditional sense, a different approach is needed, looking at texture, combinations of timbres and the portrayal of 'atmosphere'. Do this, in conjunction with the interesting programme notes, and I believe you will find the set rewarding and enjoyable.
