The art of Shakespeare was a recurring fascination for Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. In addition to two operas and numerous settings of songs and sonnets, he wrote 11 Shakespeare Overtures which here receive their first ever complete recording.

Deploying all the resources of the symphony orchestra, these are some of the twentieth century’s most dramatic and tuneful orchestral works, spectacular evocations of Shakespeare’s greatest plays.

Volume Two will shortly be available on Naxos 8572501.

Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s settings of Shakespeare songs can be heard on Marco Polo 8223729.
