Little Tune for Vittorio in Maremma

1:11
 Vittorio Ceccanti Soloist
     


 This is the second album of works focussing on Peter Maxwell Davies’ continuing artistic relationship with the Ceccanti family. The Second Strathclyde Concerto is notable for its eloquently expressive cello lines and the composer’s signature transparency of orchestration. The Sonata ‘Sequentia Serpentigena’, written for Vittorio, was inspired by early medieval stone carvings in Tuscany and uses Gregorian chant to bring the serpent’s symbolism of temptation and betrayal to life. The Little Tune for Vittorio is a song based on an original theme in a Scottish folk style. Vittorio and Mauro Ceccanti can be heard in Maxwell Davies’ Linguae Ignis and Vesalii Icones on Naxos 8.572712.

 "... The Composer’s many admirers will want this release for the alternative view of the Concerto, as well as for the well-engineered world premiere recordings of the other works."

Ronald E Grames - Fanfare - November/December 2013
