Goffredo Petrassi (1904-2003): Coro di Morti; Noche Oscura; Quattro inni Sacri; Partita / Giorgio Berrugi, tenor; Vasily Ladyuk, baritone

Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, April 2015
Noseda's tempos [in Noche oscura] court sluggishness on occasion, but it's a risk worth taking, and the choir responds empathetically...The impressively pugnacious Partita acts as a curtain-raiser, and the orchestra enjoys nailing down the spiky rhythms of the outer movements. Another thought-provoking, highly worthwhile Petrassi programme.

This new Petrassi recording with Gianandrea Noseda and his Italian forces is part of our ongoing Italian music series. Last year's release of Salmo IX° and the Magnificat (CHAN 10750) was widely praised, Gramophone stating: 'The performances by the forces of Teatro Regio, Turin, are committed and persuasive... Excellent sound makes this a thoroughly recommendable release and I hope Chandos and Noseda go on to give us more choral Petrassi, such as Coro di morti' - which indeed features on this album. The Orchestra Teatro Regio Torino is joined in Quattro inni sacri by the internationally famous tenor Giorgio Berrugi and by the baritone Vasily Ladyuk, who is a regular guest soloist at the Bolshoi and Novaya Opera Theatres.
