Notes & Reviews:

Forming part of the ongoing survey of orchestral works by Alfredo Casella, the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and Gianandrea Noseda perform the Symphonic Rhapsody Italia, the Third Symphony, and the Introduzione, Corale & Marcia for large orchestral forces. International Record Review described Volume II as a "remarkable disc."

The Guardian, 13th June 2013
The performances are exceptional: even by their own standards, Noseda and the BBC Philharmonic have done nothing finer.

The Telegraph, 20th June 2013
Those who have been following Noseda's Casella series will be keen to add this disc to the collection...There is a whole spectrum of influences at work on Casella, but they are subsumed into a personal, dynamic style that the BBC Philharmonic conveys with sinew and spirit.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Francis and Noseda are both very well played and engineered. Francis is slow, broad, blended, and Germanic, and he reaches into the music to inflect the line. Francis's romantic performance looks back to Mahler, particularly in II, which in many places could almost be Mahler. Noseda's tempos are faster, his textures and rhythms more defined and incisive, and his colors more brilliant, all resulting in a modernist approach that leans away from Mahler.

MusicWeb International, 15th July 2013
The BBC Philharmonic is an outstanding orchestra who maintain excellent form throughout. Their playing of these multicoloured works is ideal. I love the way they can easily generate thrusting intensity then seamlessly shift to episodes of tender serenity. Noseda's stunning interpretation of the Symphonymakes a splendid case for this marvellous work.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2013
Noseda encourages the BBC Philharmonic to give of their considerable best throughout) the exuberant yet marvellously controlled orchestral playing towards the close of Italia really does raise the roof)...A very strong recommendation.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2013
This is attractive music and the BBC Philharmonic under Noseda are strong advocates.
