hr-Sinfonieorchester & Frankfurt Symphony Radio Orchestra, Arturo Tamayo
Usually despatched in 2 - 3 working days.
Quadrivium was composed in 1969 and marks the beginning of Maderna’s final creative period, during which he wrote impressive and headstrong works for large symphonic forces. Aura was commissioned for the 80th anniversary of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and was premiered in 1972. Amanda was written in 1966 and is uninhibited, cheerful and lyrical.
“Tamayo makes most of Maderna's neat premise. The conductor walks through the orchestra, as if he's navigating pathways through the secret garden Maderna invokes in his title. If nothing different happened in sound there would be little point in going to such extremes; but Tamayo creates an illusion of three-dimensional sound”

“The performances under Arturo Tamayo are just what one wants, nicely detailed with a real confident sweep about them: the Frankfurt Radio Orchestra sound as if they've been playing this music all their professional lives.”
