Showpieces & Encores
Prelude from From Holberg's Time, Op. 40 / 2:44
"This is an album of favorite short pieces, favorites of the Moscow Chamber Orchestra musicians and our audiences alike. We play them at our young people's concerts, for festive occasions as part of our special appearances at embassies and consulates, and of course as often-requested encores. A number of these selections offer opportunities for some of the virtuosi who make up our orchestra to take solo turns."--Maestro Orbelian
Continuing his ambitious new series of recording for Delos, Maestro Orbelian and the Moscow Chamber Orchestra bring to concert fan and classical listener alike this new collection of ENCORES AND SHOWPIECES. This exciting new recording moves the listener into the concert hall, allowing them to bask in the beautiful and well-loved encores which are the heart and soul of a Moscow Chamber Orchestra performance. Showcasing this astonishing ensemble, ENCORES AND SHOWPIECES also makes room for the solo instrument, allowing the total flavor and unique luminous sound to combine with musical brilliance. A must have collection for the fan and so-to-be fan alike.
