Notes & Reviews:

The works are played by the Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma, directed by Francesco La Vecchia, and feature astute readings by soloists Vadim Brodski, Andrea Noferini, Chiara Bertoglio and Désirée Scuccuglia.

MusicWeb International, 27th June 2013
[La Vecchia] conducts with energy and conviction throughout. The Rome orchestra responds enthusiastically, and the orchestral sound has plenty of colour and presence, with nice grip from the brass at the tuttis. A must for Respighi fans, and anyone wanting to explore this currently neglected composer.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
This is by far the best Concerto Gregoriano ever recorded. It takes 32 minutes, so it's more expansive. They can be quite majestic - and they are certainly never wild. This is all slow music and very beautiful. Vadim Brodsky is the wonderful violinist. The sound is gorgeous. The Adagio with Variations is for cello and orchestra and has been championed by many a cellist, so is quite well known. It's also a beautiful piece. Andre Navarra played it more neatly and this is a warm, outgoing performance.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013
I particularly enjoyed Andrea Noferini's impassioned, songful contribution in the 1921 Adagio con variazioni...this is a bold and colourful programme retailing at such an absurdly low price.
