Excellent trip into Part's non-choral works
One of Naxos' most superb titles, these recordings of "Fratres" are diverse and astounding. "Fratres" is certainly one of Part's most electric compositions, and the Hungarian State Opera Orchestra embues all performances on this recording with pulse, depth, and sensitivity, oscillating from moments of gripping intensity to quiet reflection. The sound of the recording is quite good as well.
I feel that this recording admirably straddles Part's duality: searing yet intensely personal.
