Notes and Editorial Reviews

This release showcases the works of Dinos Constantinides performed by The Louisiana Sinfonietta. The Louisiana Sinfonietta is an independent, nonprofit organization, wholly supported by its patrons and state and local grants. It emerged in the early 1980's as a core of the Baton Rouge Symphony, becoming a chamber orchestra with the composer himself, Dinos Constantinides as its conductor. Several world premieres of works by the Louisiana composers have been part of its repertoire. It may also be noted that with the support of its first president, Cecilia Franklin, the orchestra became an independent organization in 1990. The ensemble continues to be composed of very skillful, talented, and enthusiastic young local musicians devoted to Read more presenting exciting concerts of mostly baroque and contemporary music for listeners to enjoy.
