"Four Stars ... Noseda and the BBC Philharmonic capture the verve and spirit of Casella’s oft-changing music." - BBC Music Magazine "... I am once again dumbstruck by how engaging and wonderful this music is.The orchestra plays its collective heart out ... (the) recording is stunning in its realism and impact." - MusicWeb International "The music is enchanting, scenic, lively and unfailingly attractive. Suffice to say that the performances are labours of love ... sounds quite superb ... with wonderful tangibility and perspective and clarity in perfect accord." - ClassicalSource.com "... beautifully done and compelling ... (the performance) is brilliant ... very well engineered. Casella remains one of the few unquestionably great 20th century composers who has yet to earn the acclaim he deserves. You owe it to yourself to get to know him." - ClassicsToday.com This is the second volume in a series of orchestral works by Alfredo Casella, performed by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and Gianandrea Noseda with pianist Martin Roscoe. While largely forgotten today, Casella is considered one of the most important composers of his generation, possessing creativity and rare technical skill in abundance, as demonstrated on the works on this recording.

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!
