Rui Lopes records as a soloist with the great English Chamber Orchestra. Vivaldi, Mozart, Elgar, Villa-Lobos and Françaix were the composers chosen.
Two world premieres on the CD: Rui’s own arrangement of Edward Elgar’s Romance for Bassoon and String Orchestra (the original being for Bassoon and Symphony Orchestra) and the Jean Françaix ‘Divertissement pour Basson et Quintette ou Orchestre à Cordes’ which until now had been recorded only in the string quintet version.
Rui shared the leadership with ECO concertmaster Stephanie Gonley, the recording being made in London at the LSO St. Luke’s and Henry Wood Hall with producer Andrew Keener and sound engineer Simon Eadon.
