Notes and Editorial Reviews

Inspired by Mahler and Strauss, the Italian composer Alfredo Casella created his multi-layered second symphony in Paris in 1908/09 - the highlight of his early work. With this work, he regained international recognition for the Italian symphony. At the age of 45, he also devoted himself to the music theater and composed the opera La Donna Serpente after a fairy tale by Carlo Gozzi.
