REVIEWS | Gramophone UK

Daniele Rustioni's first CD for Sony Classical.
Ghedini Music for Orchestra.
"Little of Giorgio Federico Ghedini’s orchestral music has appeared on disc, so Daniele Rustioni’s survey of four of his major scores is of considerable importance.
... Rustioni proves a superbly intelligent guide to Ghedini’s combination of intellect and passion. You notice the basic string sound changing from piece to piece, as the leanness of Appunti gives way to the queasy over-ripeness of Musica notturna. He’s wonderfully alert to Ghedini’s ambivalent way with brass and woodwind, where beauty and menace are differentiated by the sparest shifts in timbre. The soloists are uniformly excellent ... It’s a significant achievement that forces us to reappraise a composer all too frequently overlooked. Recommended."
