The art of Shakespeare was a recurring fascination for Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. In addition to two operas and numerous settings of songs and sonnets, he wrote 11 Shakespeare Overtures which here
receive their first ever complete recording. Deploying all the resources of the symphony orchestra, these
are some of the twentieth century's most dramatic and tuneful orchestral works, spectacular evocations
of Shakespeare's greatest plays. Volume Two is available on Naxos 8.572501. Castelnuovo-Tedesco's
settings of Shakespeare songs can be heard on Marco Polo 8.223729.
