Label:Chandos - Date:2013

This is the third volume in Chandos’ survey of orchestral works by Alfredo Casella, which forms part of the ongoing Italian Music series with the BBC Philharmonic and Gianandrea Noseda. The two previous volumes have been very well received by reviewers and the buying public alike, David A. McConnell of MusicWeb International commenting: ‘I am once again dumbstruck by how engaging and wonderful this music is. The orchestra plays its collective heart out, and the Chandos recording is stunning in its realism and impact.’………..

The temptation to call Casella's music »charming« may be great, but perhaps such a label will not do anything to take away from it. But with such a diminutive of perception one will in no way do justice to the high standards of his music and their virtuoso realization in a manner which has been recognized as having been unique along the paths leading to New Music.

Label: Chandos Records | Catalog N.: CHAN 10712 | TT - 73:26

Italy's Alfredo Casella has been talked up as the great unknown composer of the first half of the 20th century. He was influenced by Debussy, Mahler, Schoenberg, and Stravinsky in turn, yet he mixed and matched elements of their styles with a distinctive formal imagination. Casella was largely responsible for the reintroduction of Vivaldi to the musical world, and some of the neo-classic music he composed later in his career had direct Baroque references. This album lacks that aspect of his work, but these three pieces, each made up of short chunks of music, probably offers an easier introduction to Casella than do the weightier symphonies. The Concerto for Orchestra, loosely neo-classical, appeared in 1938 and thus lay between Hindemith's and Bartók's works with the same title.

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Enrique Granados’s birth the three internationally admired volumes of his orchestral discs have been brought together. Characterised as “affectionate and characterful” by Gramophone (volume 2 on 8573263) they include one of the greatest pieces in all Spanish music, the Intermezzo from Goyescas, as well as much that is exceptionally rare, such as the symphonic poem Dante, one of the most ambitious and exciting Spanish orchestral works of its time.

The musical chameleon Emil Nikolaus von Reznicek is one of the late German Romantic composers, whose multifaceted style makes him difficult to classify. Prior to the inauguration of CPO's grand edition of Reznicek's major works a few years ago, he was known to classical music fans solely as the composer of the Donna Diana Overture. In the meantime things have changed: on our many Reznicek releases listeners can experience for themselves all the Stunts seriously intended ones, mind you performed by this master of metamorphosis.

Alfredo Casella, Virgilio Mortari, "La tecnica dell'orchestra contemporanea"
Casa Ricordi | 1996 | ISBN: 887592502X | Italian | PDF | 264 pages | 8.6 MB

La presente opera vuole essere un manuale pratico ed aggiornato ( 1950 ), che tratta della tecnica e delle possibilità espressive degli strumenti nell' orchestra contemporanea senza entrare nel merito all' arte dell' orchestra vera e propria, per la quale, più di un trattato, serve il lavoro assiduo, assistito da un bravo maestro, e la conoscenza e lo studio delle partiture dei grandi compositori.
