Malipiero: Sinfonia degli eroi; Dai sepolcri. © 2015 Naxos Rights US Inc

Whilst Gian Francesco Malipiero is not exactly a household name, I was amazed that most of the music on this disc had never been recorded before. It appears that the composer had left much of his music from the early part of the twentieth century in boxes in his basement.

This disc has some fine music and the performances by the Thessaloniki State Symphony Orchestra conducted by Amaury du Closel are a fantastic addition to my recorded musc library, and I'm sure that they'll be a hit in others' collections too.

Sinfonia Degli Eroi, written in 1905, was not performed between 1911 and 2010...
