This disc focuses on works that Pietro Mascagni, a composer largely known for his operatic output, composed for the concert hall. It forms part of Chandos’ ongoing series devoted to Italian music, the music performed by Gianandrea Noseda and Filarmonica ’900 Teatro Regio Torino with the tenor Luciano Ganci. Mascagni devoted his early years to composing sacred works, two such pieces being featured here, the tuneful Padre nostro and Ave Maria, the latter adapted from the Intermezzo of his operatic masterpiece Cavalleria rusticana. Two other works were written for the orchestra in Cerignola, Puglia where Mascagni had founded the local Philharmonic Society: the symphonic Danza esotica and Mein erster Walzer which presents Mascagni’s unique take on the Viennese waltz. Mascagni himself described La gavotta delle bambole as a ‘charming little thing’ for which he had hopes of popular success. Soon after, he composed the incidental music to Hall Caine’s play The Eternal City, the Suite from which focuses on the love between the two protagonists. Two further works represent a much later period in Mascagni’s compositional life, the small-scale symphonic poem Visione lirica and L’apoteosi della cicogna, his last orchestral work.

“… The Filharmonica ‘900 Teatro Reggio Torino was founded in 2003, at the initiative of the musicians of Turin’s distinguished opera orchestra. It is a first-rate ensemble, and Noseda conducts fluent , dynamic performances. Chandos’s sound is warm and detailed, and I can recommend this appealing CD.”

"...Some agreeably spick-and-span playing from the Turin orchestra under Gianandrea Noseda’s sympathetic baton and Chandos’s unobtrusively natural sound grace an anthology that Mascagni diehards will want to hear..."
Andrew Achenbach - Gramophone magazine - October 2013
“…This was an agreeable programme – enjoyable , and well presented.”
Peter Spaull – Liverpool Post – 9 October 2013
"A fascinating programme of concert works by a composer famed for his work for the stage Noseda has championed Mascagni before, and his passion for (and pride in) this repertoire shines through every bar. Anyone who loves Italian music of the late 19th and 20th centuries should sample without delay."
Guy Weatherall - Classical Music magazine - October 2013
"... The Filarmonica ’900 orchestra plays it [Visione lirica] with ravishing beauty. For an insight into Mascagni away from the operatic stage, this is a diverting album, enticingly played."
