Notes and Editorial Reviews

This new release features four masterpieces from twentieth century composers: Bartok’s Divertimento, Rota’s Concerto for Strings, Ghedini’s Violin Concerto Il Belprato, and Hindemith’s Trauermusik for viola and strings. While these four works are vastly different in character and emotional nuances, all of the works share the Neo-classical style, in which baroque and classical form attaches itself to modern elements such as atonality and polyrhythms. I Solisti Aquilani are known for their instrumental freedom and imaginative performances. This elite ensemble performs these works with a strong and homogeneous ensemble discipline.
