Program Notes

[Benjamin Britten] was only 22 when he created a suite based on Rossini melodies for the film The Tocher. Soirées musicales is based in turn on that suite: five brisk, bright movements for orchestra. The suite is dedicated to the film director Alberto Cavalcanti, director of The Tocher.
