Quote from: Brian on March 17, 2023, 05:48:25 AMThis is arrangements for saxophone quartet, cello, and piano of Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations, a Vivaldi concerto, the Falla Canciones, and the Rhapsody in Blue. It could sell dozens of copies.
Quote from: Todd on March 17, 2023, 05:55:04 AMI wonder if the composer was inspired by the flick Mary Magdalene. This seems like a musical equivalent to that.
Quote from: Brian on March 17, 2023, 05:35:53 AMThe cover spelling of the ensemble has sent me down a Wiki rabbit hole. Previous recordings of this orchestra have credited it as the Aarhus Sinfonietta. It turns out that the official spelling of the city changed from Århus to Aarhus in 2011. So if the orchestra is changing its spelling in the reverse direction, it is going against the historical grain. City institutions are still allowed to use the old spelling (and apparently the local newspaper does).Here is a blog post in Danish about the controversy.https://dsn.dk/nyheder-og-arrangementer/aarhus-eller-aarhus/Yes, it's weird that I'm more interested in this than in the fact of a new oratorio celebrating Mary Magdalene
