Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
Where would we music lovers be without the Naxos label working doggedly to record the music of every deserving composer they can get their ears on? In this case, it's the orchestral music of Italian composer Alfredo Catalani... All this music is beautifully performed by conductor Francesco La Vecchia and the Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma, the same team that has been bringing us the popular series of orchestral music by another Italian, Alfredo Casella. ... read more ...

  • Italian composer Alfredo Catalani is today best remembered for his opera La Wally.
  • Francesco La Vecchia leads the Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma in a program of lesser-known but worthy orchestral compositions.
  • Includes 2 world premiere recordings
  • Booklet notes in Italian and English

The best piece, by far, is the 1884 symphonic poem Ero e Leandro...The performances, from the Rome Symphony under Francesco La Vecchia, are thrillingly intense.
