Éric Le Sage, Emmanuel Pahud & Paul Meyer - Nino Rota: Chamber Music - Presto Classical

If (like me) you know the Italian composer predominantly through his film-scores, this superbly-played collection of his chamber works will yield a wealth of delightful surprises – there are whispers of Ravel in the early Piccola Offerta and shades of Stravinsky in neo-Classical mode in the outer movements of the earworm-packed Nonetto, which also boasts an enchanting and imaginatively-scored set of pastoral variations.
