Notes & Reviews:

This is Volume 2 in the series of orchestral works by Alfredo Casella, performed by the BBC Philharmonic and Gianandrea Noseda, with the pianist Martin Roscoe. The disc also forms part of the 'Italian Series' on Chandos, in association with Ricordi Music and the BBC Philharmonic. International Record Review said of the previous volume: 'Anyone with more than a passing interest in this fascinating composer needs to have this remarkable disc.' Casella was one of the most important composers of his generation, possessing creativity in abundance, and rare technical skill.

"For anyone inquisitive about what happened to Italian music after the death of Puccini, these forthright performances with all musicians on top form come thoroughly recommended." -BBC Music Magazine

BBC Music Magazine, July 2012
[A notte alta] has a dark beauty and some striking sonorities. Martin Roscoe is the exquisite soloist here, and this atmospheric performance should win new friends for a work that is among Casella's best...Noseda and the BBC Philharmonic capture the verve and spirit of Casella's oft-changing music.
