DAVID DEL TREDICI (b.1937): Magyar Madness, BERNARD HERRMANN (1911-1975): Souvenirs de voyage.
Catalogue Number: 12S062
Description: We offered the Del Tredici just seven months ago (05R067) but, since almost no one bought it then, we’re giving it another chance at mid-price in this new recording. It’s a neo-romantic, readily appealing 44-minute surprise, packed with puns, both musical and descriptive, starting with the title's allusion to David Krakauer's ensemble 'Klezmer Madness' and is an excellent discmate for the lushly romantic Herrmann work. Michel Lethiec (clarinet), Fine Arts Quartet.
