Dalasinfoniettan, formed in 1988 and with 28 full-time musicians, is based in Falun in central Sweden and has a mission to cover the whole region of Dalecarlia with annual concerts in a variety of venues with repertoire spanning from baroque to contemporary music and jazz. Occasionally they also join forces with other orchestras to perform large-scale symphonic works, and sometimes the orchestra divides into smaller chamber ensembles. Dalasinfoniettan regularly invites internationally acclaimed soloists and guest conductors such as Janine Jansen, Benjamin Schmid, Daniel Raiskin, Vilde Frang, Torleif Thedéen, Malena Ernman, Michael Schønwandt and Leif Ove Andsnes to perform with the orchestra. Since 2006 Dalasinfoniettan hosts the international chamber music festival Vinterfest. This release features the ensemble performing works by Poulenc, Ligeti, and Mats Larsson Gothe.
