A superb recording of five pieces for double wind quintet composed by Franco Cesarini.

Suite Siciliana is a true tribute to this beautiful island, a piece composed by seven dances in the musical form typical of the baroque period.

Divertimento, an early work of Franco Cesarini, illustrates the composer’s love of popular song. A piece characterised by skillful instrumentation and meticulous attention to balance and form.

Le Cortège du Roi Renaud is a suite in five parts based on tales that originate in southern European folk songs dating back as far as the 16th century.

Pastorale de Provence, a suite in four movements, was written by Franco Cesarini in memory of the great Provençal composer Darius Milhaud.

As the title says, Greek Folk Dances is entirely in the sign of Greek dances starting with a kalamatianos, followed by a zeibekiko. The piece ends with a hasapiko.

A perfect mix of new and less new repertoire, perfectly composed and arranged for  double wind quintet by Franco Cesarini and beautifully performed by the Rovereto Wind Ensemble!


The Rovereto Wind Ensemble

The Rovereto Wind Ensemble is part of the Rovereto Wind Orchestra. The Rovereto Wind Orchestra was founded in 1997 in Rovereto (Province of Trento). Under the guidance of Maestro Andrea Loss, the orchestra has grown in every sense over the past 20 years, performing increasingly demanding repertoire and gaining prestigious awards at both national and international level in music festivals and competitions around Europe. This increasingly challenging repertoire, linked to the needs of a group of players whose level of musicianship was growing steadily, meant widening the geographical area the musician themselves come from. Originally a student band, in just a few years it became a real “melting pot” of players of all ages, initially from the Province of Trento then including musicians from the surrounding regions of Northern Italy.

Andrea Loss, Conductor

Born in Rovereto (Trento), Andrea Loss began his clarinet studies at a young age, graduating from the Conservatorio “J. Tomadini” in Udine under the guidance of Paolo Beltramini. After finishing classical high school he undertook various master classes in clarinet, saxophone, orchestral and band conducting, as well as operatic singing, both in Italy and abroad. Since 1997 he has conducted the renowned Rovereto Wind Orchestra, which he initially founded as the high school band “Liceo Antonio Rosmini” in Rovereto; while in 2011 he became the conductor and co-founder of the Orchestra di Fiati della Provincia di Vicenza. For over 20 years he has been active as principal and guest conductor of numerous musical groups in Italy and abroad (Europe and USA), as well as a conducting teacher at various universities, schools and music conservatoires in Italy and abroad. He is the current artistic director of ISEB (Istituto Superiore Europeo Bandistico), conductor of the Corpo Bandistico di Lizzana (Trentino), Banda Cittadina di Peschiera del Garda (Verona), and teacher of music education in the English language at the “Antonio Rosmini” humanities high school in Trento.
