<<<  <<  -- 3 --  Ron Bierman    AN UNEXPECTED PLEASURE

-------------------------------

It can be difficult to distinguish between an oboe and an English horn. This is the perfect opportunity to prove your skill. Both instruments are played with a full rich tone by Diego Dini Carlini. Notice the slightly more open sound of the English horn in the concerto finale.

Listen -- Finale (Concertino Op 34) (track 12, 0:00-0:53)

Conductor, soloists and chamber orchestra handle their assignments with grace and ease. Ignore CPO's unexciting CD cover. The sound is fine and the music pleasurable. Strongly recommended -- to those who, like me, are willing to run the risk of being labeled unadventurous.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to augment my wish list with a recording of Wolf-Ferrari's violin concerto and a two-disc set of his chamber music. Good job CPO!
