About

An all-Italian, all-rare 2CD compendium. Fernando Previtali’s orchestral recordings for Decca of music by Respighi, Ghedini, Petrassi and Casella were recorded in July 1956 and had a relatively short lifespan. Other than Respighi’s Pines of Rome, the remaining music was then – as it is now – largely unfamiliar to the concert-going and record-buying public.

Another disc of late-19th/early-20th century orchestral music, conducted by Nello Santi, of some particularly piquant music by Wolf-Ferrari completes what is bound to be a much sought-after release.

Previtali does the outer movements [of the Pines of Rome] with the greatest liveliness, the quiet inner ones with sensitivity […] The music [of La giara] is lively stuff of no great consequence but attractive enough in an unpretentious way. Good light listening' - Gramophone

This recording is recommended to those particularly interested in Italian opera overtures and intermezzi… the playing is good and the recording good too’ - Gramophone [Wolf-Ferrari]
