About

Impressioni brasiliane, another orchestral triptych (in a similar vein to The Fountains, Pines and Festival of Rome), communicates Respighi's impressions from the summer he spent in Rio de Janeiro - the composer was fascinated by the popular music of Brazil.

La Boutique fantasque (The Fantastic Toyshop), was composed in 1918 for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, and performed more than 1000 times during the following few years. Respighi's score was based on piano pieces by Rossini.
