Nino Rota’s reputation outside Italy as, at best, a civilised purveyor of minor theatre music is turning out to be hardly even a half-truth. BIS’s series of his symphonic and chamber works, and Chandos’s of the concertos, reveals a composer of incisive gifts and technical brilliance. Civilised the music certainly is, but often far more than that, its pervasive wit enhancing rather than detracting from the elegant suggestions of deep feeling. The wise and wily ‘neo-classicism’ of the Third Symphony sets out like an exercise in updated Mozart, but though Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony is brought to mind it soon becomes evident that a strain of acid melancholy undercuts the dapper phraseology. The model here, if there is one, seems more likely to be late Busoni, with disturbing cross-currents just beneath the surface. The Concerto festivo, more obviously a display piece, takes Italian opera genres (aria, cabaletta, etc) and reinterprets them in fairly irreverent orchestral terms, while the ballet music that Rota produced for the tercentenary of the death of Molière – almost his last work –insouciantly mixes Baroque, modern and popular styles, just as it mixes merriment and melancholy, with constant technical brilliance and utter lack of pomposity. The Swedish performers take to the Italianate gaiety as to the manner born. A delightful disc.

Review by Calum MacDonald, BBC Music Magazine

The idiom on display here stands squarely in the neo-classical tradition, a sort of Italianate Poulenc or Kurt Weill (from the period of the Second Symphony). Nino Rota's tuneful, expertly scored Third Symphony offers charm and wit without ever becoming facile, and sports a truly lovely slow movement. Ole Kristian Ruud conducts a fine performance with the single possible exception of the third movement scherzo, which could move a bit faster. On the other hand, he gets the tempo of the finale exactly right: brisk but not to the point where the excellent Norrköping winds have trouble tonguing the repeated notes of the principal theme. In all, this is a delightful work that ought to be played far more often, particularly by chamber orchestras.

Hannu Koivula leads the remainder of the program. The Concerto festivo, subtitled "Concerto for Orchestra" lets all of the solo players strut their stuff in the course of five delightfully brief movements. A delicious little "cabaletta" follows the second movement "aria" in typically Italian fashion, and its acrobatic high jinks will bring a smile to the lips of any sympathetic listener. The suite from the ballet Le Molière imaginaire evokes Prokofiev (Cinderella especially), with a wholly apt touch of Offenbach fortifying such movements as the final gallop, or the marvelous slow waltz representing the character of Armande. Koivula leads delightful performances with nary a dull second, and as with the symphony the Norrköping orchestra does the music proud. Sonics are a touch bright, but otherwise are admirably clear and finely detailed.
