"Around Small Fairy Tales is one of the most fascinating melanges I've encountered in a long while. Clarinetist Gianluigi Trovesi (who also wields an alto sax on occasion) here fronts a 23-piece orchestra, the Orchestra da Camera di Nembro Enea Salmeggia, under the direction of arranger Bruno Tommaso. There are quite a few violins and other strings included - there's even a harp. Most of what they play is written by Trovesi, although there are some other odds and ends thrown in, including a couple of anonymous old tunes from Naples, dating from the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries!"
