MusicWeb International, December 2013

Roberto Fabbriciani’s programme of flute works for Tactus offers chiefly miniatures and transcriptions, but is no less interesting or entertaining—Rota’s writing is uniformly high-quality. The composer-authorised arrangement for flute of the Violin Sonata is highly idiomatic and rather beautiful, oozing romance and nostalgia. It can only be hoped that flautists everywhere hear this version and add this work to their own repertory…the Fantasia on Film Themes is another noteworthy piece, taking some of the most memorable tunes from Rota’s own scores for Fellini…The Italian-English booklet notes by Cesare Valentini show a true understanding of the layered nature of Rota the composer. This is arguably one of Tactus’s finest CDs. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
