OTTORINO RESPIGHI

Gli uccelli (The Birds)

EINOJUHANI RAUTAVAARA

Cantus Arcticus, Concerto for Birds and Orchestra, Op. 61

FELIX MENDELSSOHN BARTHOLDY

Symphony No. 4 in A major, Op. 90 “Italian”

 

Brno Philharmonic

conductor Robert Kružík

 

  • Birdsong takes the leading role here ● Respighi’s 1928 suite, inspired by 17th and 18th century works, seeks to imitate avian calls (pigeon, hen, nightingale and cuckoo) ● With Nordic Romantic pensiveness, birdsong recorded in Finland, including in the bogs of Liminka and near the Arctic Circle, is used as a “solo instrument” in the best known work (1972) by Einojuhani Rautavaara (1928-2016), a prominent figure in Finnish music ● Mendelssohn’s famous symphony is imbued with the composer’s impressions from his tour of Italy, undertaken in 1830
