Notes & Reviews:

Featuring symphonic works by Alfredo Casella (1883-1947), this album contains his Symphony No. 1 in B minor, Symphony No. 2 in C minor, Sinfonia (Symphony No. 3), and Symphonic Fragments from La donna serpente. The release of this album marks the success of conductor Gianandrea Noseda, having just been named Conductor of the Year at last year's Musical America Awards, as well as being appointed chief conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington DC. Noseda conducts the BBC Philharmonic in these recordings.

The performers bring lots of character and warm yet agile playing to the Suite Sobre Cantos Gallegos, a lushly scored, sometimes piquant evocation of Galicia.
