Notes & Reviews:

This is Concerto's first release dedicated to prolific Italian composer, Ottorino Respighi. The String Quartet (Quartetto Dorico) was begun and finished in 1924; in that same year the composer was nominated Director of the Conser¬vatorio di Santa Cecilia. Passacaglia, of the Sonata, stands out among the preceding sections and "echoes" sounds of the Russian maestros of the late 19th century to whom Respighi was often attracted. The CD closes with Six Pieces for Violin and Piano composed between 1901 and 1905, consisting of 'adaptations' of works originally composed for other instruments, these pieces show their experimental nature in their genesis.
