Description: Gregori’s main work is an almost visionary achievement, in particular because he expressly called for a powerful orchestral sonority. Each concerto has its own varied and multifaceted character. The accent is on the lively orchestral idiom and its many surprises; previously unheard of combinations of string instruments are as thrilling as the transparent and lively dialogues within the orchestra.
