The 18th Century American Overture - Sinfonia Finlandia Jyväskylä (cond. Gallois, Patrick)

£33.99

Product description

Hewitt - Carr- Reinagle

Musical life in late eighteenth-century America was every bit as vibrant and that in Europe, increasingly so as local composers flourished in the wake of the War of Independence. English-born Benjamin Carr and James Hewitt and Scottish-born Alexander Reinagle contributed entertaining orchestral works to a growing 'New World' repertoire, their overtures often comprising medleys of famous classical and popular music. The internationally renowned Sinfonia Finlandia Jyväskylä , conducted by Patrick Gallois, here presents sparkling performances of these spirited pieces in accomplished reconstructions by Bertil van Boer, restoring this forgotten symphonic legacy to its rightful place on America's musical heritage.
