Mitteleuropa Orchestra was a project commissioned in 1979 by the City Cultural
Affairs department in Bologna.
Since I was very interested in expanding my composing experiences, I got together a group of talented young musicians together with several big-name soloists for an orchestral project that I decided to call Mitteleuropa in homage to what for me was, at that time, the ideal center of my own cultural background. From that point on the Orchestra became an established group and for five years it participated in the major international festivals and recorded three LPs featuring work composed by me specifically for the group.
During those years a number of important soloists, both European and American, from a wide variety of musical backgrounds were guests of the Orchestra.
Among many others, they included Albert Mangellsdorf, Mark Dresser, Martin Mayes, Paolo Fresu and Carlo Actis Dato, not to mention the great soloists you can hear on this record.
