About

The only edition of the orchestral works by Respighi, now available in an 8CD set!

Respighi is one of the foremost Italian composers of the first half of the 20th century. His fame rests on his Roman Trilogy, the scenic depiction of the Italian capital, its festivals, its pines and its fountains. His other works, however, are equally remarkable, and show a symphonist pur sang, with a rich and innovative orchestration and feeling for colour and atmosphere, inspired by the long musical heritage of his country (influences of Gregorian Chant, renaissance songs and dances, Rossini’s musical pranks).

These are excellent performances by the Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma, conducted by Francesco la Vecchia, who has done inestimable work recording neglected Italian symphonists such as Dallapiccola, Malipiero and Ghedini.

conducted with obvious affection, the playing has engaging spirit and grace” - Gramophone
