Symph. 5 / Prague Sinfonietta / Divertimentos / Quasi un Pasodoble - Balada (contemporary Catalan-born composer CD)

£4.99

Product description

Described by Leonardo Balada as 'a trip from the abstract to the ethnic', his fifth symphony, titled 'American', is a kaleidoscope of emotions. From its dark and tense opening movement, the work evolves by way of a melodious slow movement (based on a Negro spiritual) to a point of 'light and unrepentant optimism' expressed in a brilliant square dance.
Symphony No.5 'American' (2003 ; 23:39) :-
1) 9/11 : In Memoriam 2) Reflection 3) Square Dance

The 'Prague Sinfonietta' draws on the Catalan dance form, the Sardana.
4) Prague Sinfonietta (2003 ; 10:56)

The three Divertimentos explore three different aspects of string technique as a means of generating new and exciting sonorities.
Divertimentos (1991 ; 17:34) :-
5) Divertimento I 6) Divertimento II 7) Divertimento III

In 'Quasi un Pasodoble', hints of popular melodies mix with original ideas in an outpouring of colour and contrast.
8) Quasi un Pasodoble (1981 ; 11:20)

The CD is in EX condition.
