Description: This is the only available recording of the 1968-73 Divertimento, which allows the soloist to express every possible emotion in every available register (including harmonics to allow it to accompany and duet with woodwinds). Needless to say, the music itself is as genial, bright, witty and, in its slow Romanze, heartfelt as seemingly everything this wonderfully humane composer writes. This is at least the fourth CD recording of the magical and utterly delicious Concerto soirée (1961) and the second of the symphony (1956-57), a relatively brief work (18 minutes here - three minutes faster than its 2001 BIS recording), its three fast movements characterised by a neo-classical, rhythmically restless quality while its Adagio con moto is one of Rota's most personal inspirations. Davide Botto (double bass), Barry Douglas (piano), Filarmonica '900 de Teatro Regio, Turin; Gianandrea Noseda.
