"... the performances are exemplary. Noseda’s familiar combination of rigour and emotional extremism is in evidence throughout. The symphony seethes with tension and excitement ... Gillian Keith is the aptly glacial-sounding soprano ... the playing throughout is terrific in its intensity and panache. Highly recommended." - Gramophone Gianandrea Noseda and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra present a fourth captivating volume of orchestral works by Alfredo Casella, part of the ongoing Musica Italiana series. The centrepiece of this album is the Symphony No. 1, an early work of creative energy and burning conviction, in which Casella’s enthusiasm for Russian music is revealed in the sombre Mussorgskyan opening theme. Soprano Gillian Keith appears on the Symphonic Fragments from 'Le Couvent sur l'eau'.

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!
