Goffredo Petrassi was one of the most important Italian composers of the twentieth century. Beginning with the previously unrecorded Divertimento in C, this release focuses on Petrassi’s compositions of the 1930s and 40s. Employing an unusual mix of styles and idioms, as well as brief quotations from Ravel and Stravinsky, the Partita was the first work to win him renown. The eloquent Quattro inni sacri (Four Sacred Hymns), described by the composer as ‘music of today for the faithful of today’, were intended as an antidote ‘to the unctuous and conformist style in use in our churches’ but, in reality, are only ever heard in the concert hall. Soon after the start of the Second World War, Petrassi wrote his meditative madrigale drammatico, Coro di Morti (Chorus of the Dead), the composer’s first setting of a non-sacred text and perhaps his finest achievement in the field of vocal music.
 

"... LaVecchia’s conducting is up to its usual high standard, with the singing to match. The orchestra plays beautifully, with excellent dynamic control. In the Chorus of the Dead the final pianissimo, with its snare drum decresendo, as George Bernard would have said ’embraces perfect silence’. The shole album is a tribute to one of the masters of Italian art."

Michel Fleury - Classica magazine - July/August 2013


"... an ideal way to end an impressive collection that any genuine Pterassion will rush to purchase."

Ivan Moody - International Record Review - July/August 2013


"... very fine and most welcome addition to Petrassi’s discography..."
