Product Description

Product Description

Although Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari is known mainly for his operatic compositions (La vedova scaltra is available on Naxos CD 8.660225-26 and DVD 2.110234-35), he wrote a number of sublimely expressive and lyrical orchestral works, devoting the majority of his time in later life to composing instrumental music. The three delightfully melodic, rhythmically buoyant and, at times elegiac works featured on this recording represent his complete wind concerto output.

Review

These three concerted works convey all the fluency and charm familiar from such Wolf-Ferrari comic operas as Il Segreto di Susanna and I Quattro Rusteghi. Although the Idillio-concertino for oboe and the Suite concertino for bassoon were written in the Thirties and the Concertino for cor anglais in 1947, they possess a lightness of touch which these performances nicely tap. --The Daily Telegraph

This is an imaginative collection of three concertino works for wind instruments, oboe, cor anglais and bassoon. They are written in a most approachable style, and if at first they appear pleasant but not exactly memorable then persevere, because they offer increasing rewards with repeated hearings. Each work has its merits, but for me the real discovery was the concertino for the bassoon. Although there are moments when the soloist is allowed to display nimbleness and humour, Wolf-Ferrari goes out of his way to write music which allows the listener the rare opportunity for discovering what an expressive and moving instrument the bassoon can be. The wistful third movement of this piece is particularly effective. Good concertos for the bassoon are not plentiful, so I hope that soloists will take up this work and make it better known. The performers on this well recorded disc are excellent and the sound quality pleasingly clear. At Naxos price, this is music to explore.

I must admit that brief excerpts from The Jewels of the Madonna and Susanna’s Secret are the only pieces I have ever come across by Wolf-Ferrari. From these previous experiences with the composer’s music I expected some frothy, tuneful music and that’s exactly what this new CD offers. There are, apparently, two other recordings currently available of these concertinos. I have no idea how good they are but I can’t imagine they could be much better than this Naxos offering either musically or technically.
The music is all very charming and tuneful, almost what you could put into the category of light music/easy listening but that’s meant as a compliment not as a criticism. So what does it actually sound like? A number of thoughts came to mind when listening to these concertinos for the first time. The oboe and cor anglais works are like romantic 20th Century homages to their baroque counterparts. Is this what Albinoni and Cimarosa would have written in another era? The Concertino for bassoon is somewhat more contemplative and doleful but this style fits the instrument perfectly and the work still has its jolly moments. In all three pieces there are also patches where the Respighi of Ancient Airs and Dances and the Stravinsky of Pulcinella creep in. Putting these passing allusions to one side the overriding conclusion is that what we have here – a guilty pleasure of a CD if ever there was one – is a disc containing well-crafted music with an underlying elegiac, wistful feelings in the slow movements and a Rossini like sparkle in the faster passages. Many of the romantic melodies clearly come from a composer with his roots in the opera house. The tunes given to the wind soloists could easily have been penned with operatic tenors in mind.
