Description: Offered primarily for Ghedini’s 1947 Il belprato, a bracing and refreshing piece with a neo-baroque first movement, playfully virtuosic second, polytonal third with hints of Stravinsky and a short, brisk finale to wrap things up, this mid-price disc also offers the not-overrecorded Rota concerto from 1964-65 (rev. 1977). Its wistful first movement is followed by a robust scherzo and heartfelt adagio, which pays hommage to Bach's Air on the G string. Daniele Orlando (violin), Francesco Fiore (viola), I Solisti Aquilani; Flavio Emilio Scogna.
