Nino Rota (1911-1979) belonged to the same generation, chronologically speaking, as Goffredo Petrassi and Bruno Maderna, the one slightly older and the other slightly younger. Yet Rota remained worlds apart from his countrymen-pioneers into the Schoenbergian postwar avant-garde; his music reflected that of older men such as Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Ottorino Respighi. Rota's concert scores were invariably tuneful and clearly orchestrated - and remarkably friendly to audiences.

"Maestro Boico took the CSO quite nicely through the changing moods, revealing them as a natural condition, where dissonance makes sense, and anticipating the difficult gypsy rhythms of the fast fourth movement with jaunty exuberance to the point where nothing it seems could be larger, the music holding all things within its embrace, with no place to go but into climax, a perpetual motion."
