Notes and Editorial Reviews

These important recordings are previously unpublished and came from the RAI Archives of Naples. They were realized at the beginning of the sixties, and they are the result of the cooperation between the “Alessandro Scarlatti” Orchestra and the conductor Lovro con Matacic. Also, it is very important that the complete version of the Incidental Music from Egmont, here in the Italian version, has been included on this release. This version of the Symphony no. 6 has hitherto been unpublished, as well as the Der Freischuetz Overture. The Russian works of the mid-nineteenth century by Rimsky-Korsakov, Mussorgsky and Borodin, belong to the London recordings of 1959 and they are also very rare.
