Description: Dating from 1932, 1933 and 1947, these three suites, identically-scored in their accompaniment, with the pairs of horns giving a delicate wash of color to the string orchestra, came close to what would be considered light music today - or, if you like, carried on the serenade tradition of Mozart's wind-based open-air compositions. Each provides 19 to 24 minutes of genial musical relaxation centered around rapt and meditative slow movements. Diego Dini Ciacci (oboe, eng horn), Paolo Carlini (bassoon), Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto; Zsolt Hamar.
