Notes and Editorial Reviews

‘My musical passions have always been the Classics and the orchestra and, therefore, to become both a composer and a conductor was a natural progression. However, intrigued by the sounds of the avant-garde, I adhered to the twelve-tone system and then to the Darmstadt school, until I realised that both had led me away from my musical origins, and to a dead end. All the works on this recording, written after I had “outgrown” my experimental period, are intended, therefore, to address the widest possible audience.’ – Álvaro Cassuto ‘My musical passions have always been the Classics and the orchestra and, therefore, to become both a composer and a conductor was a natural progression.
