Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Guitar works seem to have become part of the standard repertoire but other than those guitar works, he is eclipsed by his very famous students: Henri Mancini, Nelson Riddle, Andre Previn, Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams. Tedesco was a very prolific composer having written 220 opuses and numerous unnumbered works including hundreds of film score. The Los Angeles Horn Club commissioned this work and it was published in 1956, but to my knowledge never recorded.
This recording was made the third week of November 2010, a very cold week in Regina Saskatchewan. This multi-track recording by Richard O. Burdick is done in response to what is lacking in a lot of music today: expressiveness and a flexible tempo. Music should come from the heart, with free flowing tempos aiding the expression. This multi-track recording was recorded without using a click track.
