A chamber orchestra from northern Italy impresses with Russian, Czech and British string music.
The Ferruccio Busoni Chamber Orchestra of Trieste proposes with great vigor and sensitivity three works from the last quarter of the nineteenth century, two of which are real rarities for string orchestra: L'Idillio in seven movements (1878) by Leoš Janáček and the Serenade in one movement by Vasily Kalinnikov in G minor (1891). It is not primarily a question of a beautiful sound and a well-rounded sound image, but rather of a sincere emotion, which the traditional orchestra conducted by Massimo Belli transports in an excellent way. In the Janáček suite and also in Elgar's famous opera, northern Italians also agogically offer their own readings which add further perspectives to the 'mother tongue' interpretations. And it is amazing how here the three works belonging to different cultural areas are found harmoniously side by side. There are no weaknesses, everyone experiences extremely comprehensive, sensitive and fascinating reproductions in well-balanced recording technology. Some of the most acclaimed ensembles of our time can't even come close to this "
