"Engaging music is delivered with poise and power from the BBC Philharmonic and indeed the Toscanini-founded orchestra Teatro Regio Torino under Noseda’s attentive eye/ear ... there is nothing here not to like … sound quality is good throughout ... Noseda’s enthusiasm and intelligence should persuade listeners that acquisition of any or all of the original albums would constitute a sound musical investment ..." - MusicWeb International This special double album compilation released in 2014 celebrates ten years of Gianandrea Noseda’s Musica Italiana series. Recording with both the BBC Philharmonic and the Orchestra Teatro Regio Torino, Noseda has shown a remarkable commitment to championing long forgotten scores by well known composers as well as the finest works by altogether neglected ones. On the first album he revives several works long absent from the concert hall. The second album presents a collection of orchestral movements from the richly romantic Italian operatic repertoire of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Alongside works by towering masters Verdi and Puccini are less familiar works by Wolf-Ferrari, Giordano, Ponchielli, and Mascagni. Completing this celebration of Italian music are substantial excerpts from choral works by Goffredo Petrassi, taken from a recording that was widely praised.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
