Notes & Reviews:

This new release from ICA Classics presents the first recording of Antonio Pappano conducting Elgar with his Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome. For this program, Elgar's First Symphony is paired with his Concert Overture 'In the South,' which was inspired by the conposer's holiday in Alassio during 1903-1904. Both of these works had been out of the orchestra's repertoire for more than a century until Pappano stated that he was "on a mission to bring this music back to its place of birth," knowing that his performers had "natural Italianate passion and lyricism," which would be perfect for these works. Pappano's 2012 London season opened with Elgar. Reviewers had only positive things to say: "... His surging striving account caught all the nervous energy of this elegia work... Now he should take the symphony... to his own orchestra [in Rome]."
