ORCHESTRE SYMPHONIQUE DE LAVAL TRUDEL BAYRAKDARIAN, ISABEL BAYRAKDARIAN

This ATMA all-Respighi recording by the Orchestre symphonique de Laval is its first with current artistic director and principal conductor Alain Trudel. Canadian star soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian joins the orchestra for the lyric poem Il tramonto (The Sunset). Respighi found inspiration for his Botticelli Triptych in three celebrated Sandro Botticelli canvases. The Birds pay homage to the Baroque-era composers’ fancy for musically illustrating various aspects of life — birdsongs, in this case, while Ancient Airs and Dances was inspired by the music of four Renaissance composers.
