The two Italians represented here are equally sophisticated in their treatment of the ensemble: the mysterious, macabre Allegro moderato e spiritoso gives way to the spritely, dynamic interplay of soloist and ensemble of the Rondo: Vivace con brio in Ghedini’s Concerto for violin and strings. Rota, whilst better known for his film scores, displays all the provocative simplicity and stylistic versatility of his orchestral and chamber works in his Concerto for strings; the Scherzo and Finale teem with references to European folk music. The three movements from Bartók’s Divertimento similarly contain clear allusions to Romanian folk music, but come from his more tonally grounded period, the utterly danceable Allegro non troppo and Allegro assai contrasting with the dark and moody Molto adagio. Like Bartók, Hindemith wrote his Trauermusik under the looming threat of global conflict and the composer’s music from this period demonstrates appropriately melancholic attributes. Written in only six hours after the death of King George V, the beautiful solemnity and understatement of this work is a fitting tribute both to the King and Hindemith’s style of the time.
Recorded in Italy in 2015
