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.

"All was forgiven by the electrifying account of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No 4 that brought the evening to a close. Rising out of the gloom of the work’s sombre opening movement, we were transported into a quintessential wonderland of Tchaikovsky melodies in the second movement’s Andantino in modo di canzona.

The third movement Scherzo, marked Pizzicato Ostinato, as rendered by Maestro Boico and his players, must surely rank as one of the composer’s most exquisite masterstrokes, while the fireworks of the finale cannot but drive an audience into a frenzy of exhilaration. A knock-out of a performance, from first to last."
