Although he is best known for his film scores and The Godfather in particular, Nino Rota’s concert music combines traditional tonality and forms with characteristically heartfelt melodies and appealing clarity. Contrasts abound in this selection of chamber works, from bassoon buffoonery in the Toccata to the Brahmsian eloquence of the Clarinet Sonata, and from the dramatic Improvviso and melancholy moods of the recently discovered Fantasia, to the jocular instrumental exchanges in the exquisite Trio.

“glorious: Rota at his breezily nostalgic best, with some ravishing cantilenas - the slow movement of the Clarinet Trio, for example. Sound is first-rate too and the musicians give terrifically poised performances, especially clarinettist Goran Gojevic and pianist Mary Kenedi.”
