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.


   




Review By Graham Strahle,The Weekend Australian,February 2011

Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco is one of those composers who tend to be known more for their influence than their works. Guitar Concerto No 1 is probably his most frequently heard concert work, but arguably his greatest impact was to spawn a generation of younger film composers after his arrival in Hollywood from his native Italy in 1940. Nelson Riddle, Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams were among his pupils.
