Gruppo Montebello

Gruppo Montebello was the name for many of Henk Guittart’s educational ensemble projects from 1991 until 2011. The Italian word “montebello” translates as “beautiful mountain” or in German: Schoenberg. From 2011 on the name is exclusively used for the hand-picked professional ensembles with which Henk Guittart realizes his special projects, like this recording for which he invited a mixture of Banff Centre guest faculty and alumni to perform and record in Banff, Canada, in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, the works by Debussy, Busoni and Bruckner together with a world premiere, “Against the Morning” by Taylor Brook, which piece will be released in a forthcoming recording by Etcetera.
