Notes & Reviews:

Respighi's (b. 1879) first great triumph as a composer - and the work that he is most well known for is the 'Roman trilogy', which comprises the symphonic poems Feste Romane, Fontane di Roma and Pini di Roma, featured on the first disc of this set. Each individual work is dedicated to one particular aspect of Rome from its fountains to its festivals. This trilogy is an atmospheric, evocative musical journey through Rome, and demonstrates Respighi's skill as an orchestral composer.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2012
Respighi's sizeable orchestral output has only latterly come into its own on disc and this release from Brilliant is announced as the first volume of a complete traversal. It gives a pertinent overview, moreover, of the twin aspects that inform the composer's thinking throughout his maturity: namely Italy's scenic and musical past...La Vecchia secures eloquently wrought readings.
