Reference: PHIL. 06022
Description: Together with Peter Breiner, Tognetti is one of the busiest arrangers of other people's music for different forces and, if you ever wondered what the Kreutzer sonata might sound like as a concerto, well here you go. The nine-minute Endorphin is an updating of the concerto grosso genre which starts out more dissonantly than it intends to continue and which is rather attractive all in all - like Handel in Brillo... Mahler Chamber Orchestra; Kolja Blacher (violin).
