Notes & Reviews:

Volume 2 of Petrassi's orchestral works features the rarely heard and recorded Piano Concerto and Flute Concerto. Geofredo Petrassi (1904-2003) was one of the second-generation of Italian modernist composers, which included his contemporary Luigi Dallapiccola. His compositional style reflected the influences including Bartok, Stravinsky and Nono, among others.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2014
This fine package enables convenient investigation of attractive works by a 20th-century Italian composer gaining in reputation.

International Record Review, May 2014
The best place to start...is with the most immediately accessible music on this disc, the 1945 Suite from La follia di Orlando...La Vecchia and his Roman players give a committed and idiomatic account, pleasingly detailed and rhythmically incisive, and highly skilled, too, in some of the more bizarre-sounding episodes.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
To my amazement, the library at the Eastman School of Music has full orchestral scores to all three of these obscure works by Goffredo Petrassi (1904-2003). First I listened to the 20- minute symphonic suite from La Follia di Orlando (1942-43), which is written with an easy enough harmonic vocabulary. La Vecchia offers clear rhythms and nice flow, even some lovely lyricism in the second scene.
