NIKOS SKALKOTTAS (1904-1949): Sinfonietta in B Flat, 4 Images, Ancient Greek march, Classical Symphony for Wind Orchestra, 2 Harps and Double Basses.
Catalogue Number: 03V010
Description: The modernist style of Skalkottas’ earlier period is balanced by the four important mature neoclassical works from 1946-49 presented here. Both the Sinfonietta and the Classical Symphony are expressions of the deep regard Skalkottas had for traditional forms blended with his unique musical language and the Images are a little slice of socialist realism in their evocations of the grape harvest (Harvest, Sowing, Vintage and Grape Stomping). Athens State Orchestra; Stefanos Tsialis.
