Description: It may not be an opera in a book but this Reicha bonanza, continuing an unprecedented renaissance for this composer on disc, is also produced through the aid of the Palazzetto Bru Zane. Assembling pieces from different genres and periods it gives insight into the richness of the composer’s extremely prolific output of chamber music and illustrates the diversity of the instrumental genres he tackled and a compositional art characterised at once by perfect mastery and by the greatest originality. 3 CDs for the price of 1. Soloists of the Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth.
