This week a new project was launched at the Italian Embassy in Grosvenor Square, London. The Italian Ambassador announced the start of a three year collaboration between the conductor Gianandrea Noseda, Italian music publisher Universal Music Publishing Ricordi and the Chandos record label.
Chandos will make two recordings each year for the Musica Italiana project with Noseda who will collaborate with the Teatro Regio di Torino and the BBC Philharmonic to focus on previously unrecorded symphonic repertoire by Italian composers of the 20th century.
Gianandrea Noseda who is keen to explore previously unheard Italian repertoire has already recorded Casella’sSymphony No 2 with us here at Chandos in June last year, which has received some great reviews. We are now looking forward to releasing another Casella recording , which will this time include A note alta, fragments from the opera La donna serpent and the Concerto per Orchestra. This release will be under the Musica Italiana banner and is due in June 2012.
So if you are a fan of Italian repertoire and wish to explore further or if you enjoyed our previous Casella release then the new release due in June next year will definitely be one to look out for.
