Usually ships within 1-3 days
This third disc in the series completes the world premiere recording of all three Casella symphonies. Francesco La Vecchia and the Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma 'have Casella in their bloodstream' (MusicWeb International). This disc includes two powerful works that grew from the tragedy of two World Wars. Searingly dissonant and 'profoundly human', the Elegia eroica ('Heroic Elegy') is Casella's memorial to Italian soldiers killed in World War I. Casella's Third Symphony, a commission for the fiftieth birthday of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, assimilates the influences and experiences of a lifetime into an exhilaratingly melodic, emotionally wide-ranging and truly organic whole.
