Reviews

'As a guide to this cornucopia Leslie Howard could hardly be bettered' (BBC Music Magazine)

'All kinds of fascinating morsels … there is much here to interest any admirer of this remarkable and prolific composer' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Fascinating trouvailles' (Classic CD)
La serenate e l'orgia – Grande Fantaisie sur des motifs des Soirées musicales de Rossini is the first version of what was later the Première Grande fantaisie, and although the shape of the work is not substantially different, several passages were rethought for the second edition; the coda, for example, is a much shorter headlong rush for the final bar.

La serenate e l’orgia – Grande Fantaisie sur des motifs des Soirées musicales de Rossini constitue la première version de ce qui allait être la Première Grandé fantaisie et, bien que la forme de l’œuvre ne soit pas fondamentalement différente, plusieurs passages furent repensés pour la seconde édition – ainsi la coda, qui se précipite beaucoup plus la tête la première pour la mesure finale.

La serenate e l'orgia – Grande Fantaisie sur des motifs des Soirées musicales de Rossini ist die erste Version der späteren Première Grande Fantaisie, und obwohl der Aufbau des Werkes nicht grundlegend anders ist, wurden doch verschiedene Passagen für die zweite Auflage noch einmal überdacht; die Koda ist beispielsweise ein viel kürzerer ungestümer Ansturm auf den Schlußtakt.
