Editorial Reviews

The Italian composer Pietro Mascagni was best known for his opera output, but on this recording we explore a selection of works for the concert hall from throughout his career. The works receive idiomatic performances by Gianandrea Noseda and the Filarmonica '900 del Teatro Regio Torino, with the tenor Luciano Ganc as a part of Chandos' ongoing series of Italian music.

What a disappointment! In giving this opportunity to explore the orchestral music of one of opera’s finest composers, Chandos has provided a non-event. There is nothing on this disc that screams out for rediscovery or new appreciation. The two most memorable works on this disc, the Visione lirica and the lovely Serenade, clock in at 4 minutes and 3 minutes respectively. There are no tone poems a la Liszt or Richard Strauss. The longest work on this disc, a suite of incidental music from an obscure English play, The Eternal City, sounds like music written for a silent film; indeed, the music is so sentimental, it makes Martucci sound like a progressive composer. The Ave Maria just provides the text to the Intermezzo from “Cav” with which everyone is familiar. The Mein erster Walzer is incredibly cornball; Strauss and Glazunov have nothing to worry about – and to make matters worse, the Torino orchestra struggles to keep in unison at times (a poor decision to use this take by the engineer). Of course, you get first rate Chandos sound, classic Italianate singing from Luciano Ganci (listen to his struggle with the English lyrics of the Serenade) and sensitive conducting by Noseda, but to what end? Don’t spend the money for this one – it will not enhance your library.
