Description: This identical program was offered on the obscure PhilArtis label played by a rather unknown Spanish orchestra in March 2010 (03L073). We offer it for collectors of cpo and for hard-core W-F enthusaists who want to compare performances! These four orchestral suites date from 1935-1939 and are all first recordings. The Venetian Suite is for strings only and all four movements have a now sweet, now world-weary melancholy about them; the Trittico has a chorale-like movement and a Prayer wrapped around a funeral march, but we return to the sunny world we expect from this composer in the Divertimento and Arabeschi which are full of his colorful orchestration, delightful melodic inspiration and deceptively learned contrapuntal deftness. Munich Radio Orchestra; Ulf Schirmer. SACD hybrid
