Alpha Records Releases a New Recording of Chamber Music by Nino Rota

Jul. 15, 2021

Alpha Records has released a new recording of chamber music by Nino Rota. The disc contains a variety of outstanding works for smaller forces including Trio for Flute, Violin, and Piano; Due Valzer sul nome BACH; Piccola Offerta Musicale; Nonetto; Trio for Clarinet, Cello and Piano; Prelude XIII. Andante Cantabile; and Prelude II. Allegro, ma espressivo e delicato, performed by musicians from the Salon de Provence Festival.

The record label notes:

"Nino Rota was not only the man who wrote film scores for Fellini (La strada, etc.), René Clément and King Vidor. He was also a great composer of the 20th-century. A child prodigy, he studied in America with Fritz Reiner, crossed paths with Toscanini, Igor Stravinsky and many others. Éric Le Sage, Emmanuel Pahud, Paul Meyer, Daishin Kashimoto, Aurélien Pascal and their partners from the Salon de Provence festival pay tribute to his music with the Piccola Offerta Musicale (Little Musical Offering), composed in 1943 at the age of twenty-two, alongside a Nonet and a Trio for flute, violin and piano, both written in the late 1950s. The Trio for clarinet, cello and piano (1973) comes from Rota’s last creative period and has all the characteristics of his mature works."
