During Riccardo Muti's 19-year tenure as La Scala's music director, his relationship with the Filamonica della Scala extended beyond the opera pit. The seven-CD set Riccardo Muti conducts Italian Masters celebrates their shared Italian heritage with a mixture of much-loved Verdi overtures, modern classics from Nino Rota, and enticing works from the turn of the century by the likes of Casella, Martucci, and Busoni.
