Gianandrea Noseda

Gianandrea Noseda

Gianandrea Noseda is a Milan-born Italian conductor, now working worldwide with such orchestras as the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and the Pittsburg Symphony Orchestra.
profile & recordings >>

‘With his Italian background, newcomer Gianandrea Noseda proves the perfect choice for bringing these rich scores to vibrant life along with the enthusiastic participation of the BBC Philharmonic; and of course, Chandos never disappoints in the engineering department. A necessary acquisition for all lovers of traditionalist orchestral repertoire from the early years of the last century.' Fanfare

‘Respighi has gradually been rehabilitated in recent years, and Gianandrea Noseda is just the conductor to bring out the exhilaration of works such as ‘Burlesca' and the ‘Preludio, corale e fuga', an early work written under the supervision of Rimsky-Korsakov, from whom the 20-year-old Respighi had lessons. It's not just a tour de force: the material is subtly handled and has individuality.' Sunday Telegraph


Straddling the 19th and 20th centuries, Respighi is best known for his three spectacularly orchestrated Roman tone poems and as a brilliant arranger and transcriber of other composers' works. Yet, in truth; Respighi does not merely transcribe, he unashamedly improves on the original in a remarkably innovative and harmonically daring manner. This is clearly demonstrated by the fantastic performances given here by the BBC Philharmonic under the baton of Gianandrea Noseda who takes on his fellow Italian's music with all the romance of a true Italian.

The florid and inventive Preludio, Corale e Fuga was the work with which Respighi took his diploma in composition, and is a truly astonishing work. On hearing it, his teacher Giuseppe Martucci exclaimed: ‘Respighi is not a pupil,
Respighi is a master'.

In Burlesca, hints of Smetana and Dvorak, one of Respighi's favourite composers are audible and it provides further evidence of Respighi's remarkable talent for assimilating the style of other composers, while never forfeiting his own individuality. This is ‘impressionistic' music at its finest.

Rossiniana is based on a volume of piano pieces by Rossini called Les Riens. This is a rarely performed work yet has all the characteristics of Respighi's orchestration.

Completing the programme is Respighi's orchestration of five of Rachmaninov's etudes-tableaux. On hearing that Respighi would orchestrate the works, Rachmaninov wrote to him saying ‘This good news gives me great joy, for I am sure that in your masterly hands these Etudes will be made to sound marvellous.' On hearing this orchestration it is clear how Respighi magically enters into the spirit of Rachmaninov's music and re-interprets it in his own true style. It is a joy to hear it in the hands of the BBC Phiharmonic which is renowned for the great energy, virtuosity and vibrancy of its performances, and the perfect exponents of the compositions of one of the greatest orchestrators of all time.
