Notes & Reviews:

The fourth installment of the complete orchestral works of Respighi include some of his most popular works - the Ancient Airs and Dances and the Rossiniana. Respighi's imaginative use of timbre and first-class orchestration permeate these engaging works, which are skillfully interpreted by an all-Italian cast. About the first volume in the series, allmusic.com wrote, 'The Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma under Francesco La Vecchia certainly plays very well, with the brass fully on top of the numerous passages in which they are mercilessly exposed.'

MusicWeb International, 13th March 2014
The Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma gives a sparkling performance of all three suites and the playing is enthusiastic, graceful and nicely detailed with good contributions from the woodwind soloists. There are a few moments of shaky ensemble but these are few and far between.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2014
La Vecchia directs proceedings with obvious affection, and the playing has engaging spirit and no mean grace, though I do miss the abundant charisma, corporate sheen and ingratiating glow of, say, Seiji Ozawa's classic...[Metamorphoseon] remains a likeable, agreeably characterful display.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
La Vecchia and his players present the famous Airs and Dances in crisp, clean, lively performances that are nicely played and engaging. Recorded sound, with the small caveat noted above about the piano sound, is fine. It flatters the tone of the strings, which is good because they are prominent in all these works.
