Respighi is renowned as the composer of the lavishly orchestrated Roman Trilogy, sumptuous tone-poems full of provocative harmonies and suggestive rhythms, which celebrate the city’s architectural marvels, its festivals, pines, and fountains. The composer’s kaleidoscopic writing encapsulates romantic serenade and rustic dance, solemn melody and pastoral landscape, children at play and visions of past martial glories. JoAnn Falletta’s previous Respighi recording with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra was a Gramophone Editor’s Choice.
