[dropcap]T[/dropcap]his CD does pretty much what it says on the tin. There are 17 tracks, some with and one without brass (up to four trumpets with trombone – which presumably plays the lowest of the written parts – and timps); the music ranges from under two minutes (the Sonata Sancti Spiritus) to over nine (a five-movement “Serenada”), and the performances on this re-release (the original issue of the recording made in Italy was in 1997) are lively and well recorded. Such a pity that they are let down by a particularly poor booklet note translation; “Apart from the technique of concerting in the music of Vejvanovsky there are pulsations and accents deriving from dance style” was my particular favourite line…
