  • Christmas Fantasy

The composer of the arrangements has set two versions for orchestra : one includes 1 flute, 1 oboe, 1 clarinet, 1 basson and strings; the other one includes 1 flute, 2 oboes, two horns and strings. He also scored versions for Chorus and Orchestra, for Piano and Orchestra, for Soprano and Orchestra. Lastly, he scored an instrumentation for wind-band and versions for Chorus and Piano, for Soprano and Piano, for Boy voice and Piano.

  • Waltzes and Polkas by Johann Strauss revised and arranged for Chamber Orchestra by Mario Lamberto

From 1999 to date the TPO (Turin Philharmonic Orchestra) has commissioned the arrangements for small chamber orchestra of Strausswaltzes and polkas including the scoring for 1 flute, 1 oboe, 1 clarinet, 1 basson and strings.

The arrangements were wishfully scored to be performed in concerts like the New Year Concert televised worldwide every New Year’s Day from Wien. The scoring is arranged and designed to allow performances in large cities as well as in smaller towns and small concert halls. A comparatively small number of musicians is required, which means a limited expenditure for a striking success (extra performances were often necessary to satisfy all bookings).

Over six years as many as forty-five orchestrations were scored and many others will be scored so to be able to perform a new programme every four years.
