A popular programme of works including the orchestral suite for the film score of Lieutenant Kijé
. The original film score contains two songs which are often performed by solo saxophone and orchestra but are recorded here in their original (but seldom heard) version for baritone voice.
With acclaimed previous recordings of music by Prokofiev, as well as Stravinsky, Mendelssohn and most recently Rachmaninov, Andrew Litton
and his Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra
are a tried-and-tested team in this repertoire. They make the most of the enormous palette of colours and moods provided by these three scores.
The orchestra has toured extensively in the UK at the beginning of the year, and Litton has appeared on several radio programmes including a Radio 3 documentary and in-Tune.
