Ernó´ von Dohnányi had a long career as an important composer, pianist and teacher.

Deeply indebted to the Germanic Romantic tradition, the works on this disc showcase his love of scintillating orchestral tone-colour – notably of brass, wind and percussion – and his fascination with Classical forms such as the variation.

His Variations on a Nursery Song traverses several musical styles in a tour de force of good-humoured virtuosity, while the Symphonic Minutes and the Suite in F sharp minor cultivate a lush, romantic mood with characteristic dashes of suavity.

“Falletta clearly loves this score and really appreciates the composer's unfailing imagination: her orchestra is waith her all the way in this happy and brilliant music...This music, and these performances, are a real tonic.”
