"Four Stars ... this is attractive music and the BBC Philharmonic under Noseda are strong advocates." - BBC Music Magazine "Five Stars ... the performances are exceptional: even by their own standards, Noseda and the BBC Philharmonic have done nothing finer." - The Guardian "Editor's Choice ... Noseda encourages the BBC Philharmonic to give of their considerable best throughout ... the exuberant yet marvellously controlled orchestral playing towards the close of Italia really does raise the roof ... the Chandos sound is demonstration-worthy in its sumptuous realism and intrepidly wide dynamic range. A very strong recommendation." - Gramophone This is the third volume in a cycle of Alfredo Casella's orchestral works, part of an Italian music series from the BBC Philharmonic and conductor Gianandrea Noseda. Three of Casella's most engaging neoclassical works are presented on this thoroughly delightful album including the first ever recording of his piece Italia.

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!
