About this Recording

MALIPIERO, G.F.: Symphonies, Vol. 3 (Almeida) - Nos. 5, 6, 8, 11

This third volume of Malipiero’s symphonies features the most widely played of all his Symphonies, the strikingly original Sixth (for strings) from 1947. The adventurous, at times dissonant Fifth, with its concertante part for two pianos, juxtaposes chamber and orchestral textures. From the 1960s come the Eleventh (of the bagpipes), which features drone-like ostinati, and the colourfully scored Eighth (Short Symphony). Volumes 1 and 2 are available on Naxos 8.570878 and 8.570879.
