Notes & Reviews:

The art of Ildebrando Pizzetti which is perhaps most in need of reassessment and revival, for original music of this self-evident quality - music which was performed and recorded by, among others, Arturo Toscanini, Yehudi Menuhin, Nathan Milstein and Tullio Serafin - does not deserve to remain in obscurity. His music is imaginative and strikingly beautiful, from the music he composed for theatre (La Pisanella) to the mood pictures (Tre Preludii Sinfonici), all are sure to delight listeners.

'One of the most gorgeous recordings of orchestral music I have heard in the last year' (Crisis, USA)

'Strongly recommended' (Hi-Fi News & Record Review)

'The four orchestral works on this magnificently-performed and brilliantly-recorded release show off Pizzetti's sumptuous blend of romantic-impressionistic harmony with modally-inflected melody to its richest and most cinematic ... If orchestral splendor is the music lover's chocolate, this disc is a five-pound box of opera creams. Yum' (American Record Guide)

'Brilliantly colourful performances - no better way of winning converts to Pizzetti' (Gramophone)

'This excellent and impeccably played survey reveals a talent well worth investigating' (The Scotsman)
