"Due to his inspired soundtracks for film classics by Fellini, Visconti and Coppola, the remainder of the substantial classical output of Nino Rota (1911-1979) has unfortunately been pushed out of the limelight. For a start, ten operas, several ballets, three symphonies and almost a dozen instrumental concertos are awaiting rediscovery. The composer as a convinced and convincing eclectic was able to express himself confidently and inventively not only in the Neo-Romantic style but also in the Neo-Classical tonal language which is slightly reminiscent of Stravinsky. His two cello concertos composed in quick succession during the 1970s which are included on this recording represent post-modern works par excellence, but also provide an effective and rewarding showcase for the virtuosity of exceptional cellists such as Friedrich Kleinhapl." Stereo/multichannel hybrid SACD that can be played on any CD player.
