Review By Marco del Vaglio,Agire,December 2006

Italian Classical Music between past and present in a new Naxos CD.

This most recent Naxos CD, where the composers, the orchestra, and the conductor are all Italian, represents, from our point of view, a small miracle.

Three works are recorded, beginning with the suite from La Beffa a Don Quixote (The mockery of Don Quixote), an unfinished work by the Sicilian composer Salvatore Messina (1876- 1930), in a transcription for string orchestra by the young Milanese composer Paolo Pessina (b. 1969).
