Product Description

Product Description

This recording forms part of our ongoing Italian series, fronted by the conductor Gianandrea Noseda. In the series so far, we have examined the music of many prominent Italian composers of the twentieth century, such as Respighi, Wolf-Ferrari, Casella, and Dallapiccola, as well as the great nineteenth-century master, Verdi. Noseda and his Italian forces here turn to the choral works of Goffredo Petrassi, an Italian composer who, despite being a relatively late bloomer, developed into one of Italy's most significant composers of the mid- to late twentieth century.

In the English-speaking world, his contemporary Luigi Dallapiccola may be better known, but Petrassi was just as highly regarded in his home country. His music, inspired by Stravinsky and Hindemith, is dynamic and colourful, although perhaps emotionally reserved by the standards of his countrymen.

Petrassi's talents showed themselves early. In 1913, aged nine, he became a chorister in the capital, where his encounter with Renaissance and baroque art and music left a lasting impression, one reflected later in several fine, large-scale choral works in which Petrassi combines polyphony with modern harmonies.

Here we have two such choral pieces: Psalm IX, in two parts, for chorus, string orchestra, brass, percussion, and two pianos, and the premiere recording of a Magnificat for soprano, chorus, and orchestra.

Both are performed by the Orchestra and Chorus, Teatro Regio, Torino under their Music Director, Gianandrea Noseda, for entirely idiomatic interpretations. Since he became an exclusive artist with Chandos in 2002, Noseda has recorded works by Prokofiev, Karowicz, Dvoák, Smetana, Shostakovich, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Mahler, and Bartók, as well as the Italian series discussed above.

Review

Noseada directs his Turin forces with authority and understanding of these powerful works. Performance ***** Recording ***** BBC MUSIC CHORAL & SONG CHOICE --BBC Music Magazine, Mch'13

The performances by the forces of Teatro Regio, Turin are committed and persuasive. Excellent sound makes this a thoroughly recommendable release. --Gramophone, March'13

Gianandrea Noseda directs a fine performance with plenty of dramatic sweep.Chandos has done all those interested in Italian music of the twentieth century a real service in recording it. --IRR, Apr'13

5.0 out of 5 stars Petrassi Psalm IX for Orff fans 9 July 2013
By Rex Barron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After reading a review of the Petrassi disc which described the Psalm IX as having "barbaric splendor," I didn't hesitate in ordering. A great piece, sure to please fans of Orff and Rozsa, with lots of brass, percussion, and motoric, chanting chorus work. The Magnificat is a much more sedate piece. Not unpleasant, but not nearly as memorable.
