Notes & Reviews:

Conceived originally as the score for a performance comprising music, text and archive images of legendary cyclists and commissioned in part by the 2013 UCI Road World Championships, the Naples born Cristian Carrara's (b. 1977-)'Suite per Bicicletta e Orchestra' perfectly captures in spirit and title the multiple textures that characterize this collection. Thematically broad, Carrara's melodic, whimsical, and above all gorgeous compositions are of a kind of 'atmospheric' classical strain reminiscent of popular pianist Ludovic Einaudi's works. With the Orchestre Lyrique et Symphonique de Nancy led by Flavio Emilio Scogna.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
The Magnificat is for piano and orchestra, and it appealed to me right away. I have listened to it a number of times, and I have not tired of it. Ondonomala is about a dam that burst and flooded a large area in Italy, killing hundreds of people in 1963. It's dramatic, and it's powerful. The Bicycle Suite is certainly lyrical and charming. There are moments that sound like Adams and moments like Glass. There are even moments like Hovhaness. There is nothing ugly or obnoxious in this music. If you want to hear pleasant music by a young living composer, give this Italian a chance.
