Notes & Reviews:

This is the third volume in the series of orchestral music by Milanese-born Elisabetta Brusa (b. 1954). Sharing its neo-tonal language with her Nittemero Symphony [Volume 1 / 8.555266], the imposing, vividly immediate and approachable Symphony No. 1 is her first work for large orchestra. The symphonic poem Merlin evokes the great magician of legend through rich orchestral colors and powerful rhythms. Volume 2, described by Gramophone magazine as 'a collection not to be missed', can be heard on Naxos 8.555267.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Like everything else in this series, this will be of interest to conservative listeners looking for recent symphonic repertoire of a romanticist. Performances and sonics are excellent.
