“The high point of the disc must surely be Muti’s account of Busoni’s Turandot suite, Op. 41 . . . The recording is exceptionally clear and well-focused.” — Gramophone

During Riccardo Muti’s 19-year tenure as Music Director at the Teatro alla Scala, his relationship with the orchestra extended beyond the opera pit. Among several recordings, Muti and his Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala (La Scala Philharmonic Orchestra) celebrated their shared Italian heritage with recordings of many celebrated Italian composers, including the three heard here: Alfredo Casella, Giuseppe Martucci and Ferruccio Busoni.
