Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: This almost exactly duplicates an old Philips I Musici disc which is long out of print but does not contain anything which was on the Tactus Rolla viola concerto disc released in 2006. Collectors will be familiar with the smooth Classicism of Rolla's writing and the virtuosity often demanded of the soloist. Also here are two 8-9 minute Sinfonias in the three-part, single-movement Italian opera overture format, in editions made for this recording. Simonide Braconi (viola), Ferruccio Busoni Chamber Orchestra; Massimo Belli.
