More Brunetti, Six Bassoon Quintets on Tactus TC 742701 (2002), but I’m not so enthusiastic as with the three symphonies performed by Concerto Köln on Capriccio 10 489. The music is certainly pleasant in its galant, salon style, but without much substance nor originality beyond the galant pleasantry.

As I write I’m listening to Dittersdorf’s String Quartets on Cpo 999 038-2, and there, there IS invention, originality and ear-catching surprise beyond the galant pleasantry. Review soon, I hope.
