"Alessandro Marangoni must be considered the foremost expert in this music ... he certainly plays well throughout and one admires his honesty in not making this music out to be more dramatic or emotionally vital than it really is."
- MusicWeb International

"... played by the hyperactive pianist and orchestra with such scintillating abandon, the composer's charm and brio could, just possibly, bring a smile to even the most crusty and conservative listener ... excellently recorded, this is very much a record for those with a sweet tooth who like the lighter things of life."
- Gramophone

Pianist Alessandro Marangoni takes the spotlight on this ICMA-nominated recording of two contrasting concertos by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. Concerto No. 1, written in 1927, is a vivid and witty example of romantic spirit, exquisite melodies and rich yet transparent orchestration. Concerto No. 2, composed a decade later, is a darker, more dramatic and virtuosic work. The deeply-felt and dreamlike slow movement and passionate finale are tinged with bleak moments of sombre agitation, suggestive of unfolding world events that led Castelnuovo-Tedesco to seek exile in the US in 1939. The album also includes the world premiere of the atmospheric Four Dances, representing the composer’s recurring fascination for the art of Shakespeare.

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!
