Review By Andrew Achenbach,Gramophone,August 2013

Good news: Vol 3 in Chandos’s Casella series effortlessly maintains the exalted artistic and technical standards of both its predecessors… Proceedings are launched in exhilarating fashion by the fervently patriotic 1910 symphonic rhapsody Italia, whose markedly downbeat, even anguished progress (employing folk tunes from Sicily) leads ultimately to a riotous Neapolitan carnival in which Casella…has a ball with Luigi Denza’s ‘Funiculì funiculà’; the gloriously over-the-top concluding pages have to be heard to be believed!
