Notes and Editorial Reviews

By now you have to know that the Classical DVD market has moved beyond famous operas and New Yearsí Concerts. Here we have a chance to hear and see a virtuoso chamber orchestra from Bulgaria Les Orpheistes (no relation, we assume, to the American Orpheus Chamber Orchestra!) under the direction of the talented Swiss conductor Joel Mathias Jenny and featuring acclaimed Bulgarian violinist Mario Hossen. Hossen has earned favorable reviews all over Europe, especially for his Paganini performances. Jennyís repertoire ranges from classical to modern works. He has also recorded with the English Chamber Orchestra and the St. Petersburg Camerata. Les Orpheistes consists of the finest players from the Sofia Soloists, the Sofia Philharmonic and the Read more Plovdiv Philharmonic. The program consists of some familiar and delightful favorites, as well as two novelties; the arrangement of the Piazzolla Oblivion and the Winter Music for Strings by Swiss composer Walter Baer, whose fine Violin Concerto has been recorded. This is an exceptionally entertaining DVD. Read less
