Description: This music, thoroughly retrospective but in no way antiquated, mixes the profound layers of origins and manifold influences to which the composer was exposed during his years in Paris and the United States. Consequently, the results of these multifaceted layered structures are situated in a world between Stravinsky, the members of the Groupe des Six, and the music of the New World, which manifests itself not least in the form of jazz rhythms and styles. Diego Dini Ciacci (oboe), Fabrizio Meloni (clarinet), Malta Philharmonic Orchestra; Brian Schembri.
