Pietro Mascagni: Alla Gioja (Ode to Joy), cantata for soloists, chorus & piano / Santi, Alfonsi, Fichera, Miliano. Andrea Trovato, piano

Notes & Reviews:

A work of monumental structure, Alla gioja (Ode To Joy), written in the composer's youth, looks like a typical conservatory work. Many decades later an older Mascagni judged it "a composition beyond my reach" despite "the great beauty that it contains". For almost fifty years, the score mysteriously disappeared, and it was only recently that the manuscript was returned to Mascagni's heirs, who have generously made it available in time to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Mascagni's birth.
