Notes & Reviews:

Musical America's 'Conductor of the Year' for 2015 Gianandrea Noseda continues his Chandos 'Musica Italiana' series with select works of Niccolò Castiglioni (1932-96), an intellectual and an aesthete who occupied a singular place in the profound renewal of Italian and European musical life of the 1960s-'70s. Having a predilection for clear sonorities and airy, transparent textures, Castiglioni created his own unique and original artistic philosophy, from tonal harmonies to the more fragmented and experimental. Mr. Noseda leads the Danish National Symphony and guest vocalists.

Financial Times, 25th April 2015
An enterprising disc.

The Guardian, 23rd April 2015
[Castiglioni's] joyous airiness is beautifully exemplified in the three works on Gianandrea Noseda's impressively polished disc...Each section of the text [in Altisonanza] is treated differently, and given its own sound world, but there's muscle as well as beauty; it's a remarkable piece, a real choral discovery.

The Telegraph, 31st March 2015
Castiglioni preserves the music's Baroque elegance, but clothes it in scintillating orchestral colours...Salmo XIX (1979-80) combines calm luminosity with terrifying choral eruptions and stratospheric writing for the sopranos in a work of kaleidoscopic shifts of texture and colour that the performance conveys with pinpoint panache.
