Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's a shame that this Gramophone Award winning disc only has a solitary, three-star review on Amazon, as anyone glancing through the listings for Respighi might well pass over it as not worth their consideration. This is a review of the CD and I cannot speak for the apparent issues surrounding the download version of this album having been resolved (the primary reason for the three star rating from my fellow reviewer), but I can confirm that the sound quality of the compact disc is demonstration class; in fact, it was for the audio engineering that the Gramophone Award was made in 1986. The disc was also accorded three stars by the Penguin Guide.

These are opulent scores and the ballet suite in particular calls for a greatly enhanced orchestra, including a panoply of exotic percussion instruments*; if any example of the sound quality is needed, just listen to the impact of the timpani and other drums in the 'War Dance' - or the way the brass ring out with such impressive immediacy in the same movement and in the final 'Orgiastic Dance'. Part of the score calls for performers to play the "war drums" on stage, by dancing on top of them - this isn't a subtle work and there is more than an occasional pre-echo of the more sumptuous Hollywood film scores to it... But it was, after all, conceived as a musical and theatrical spectacle, and on those terms it is hard not to respond to its lushly orchestrated exoticism, its juxtaposition of sensually beautiful music with passages of barbaric energy, and its undeniable grandeur.

The 'Metamorphoseon' theme and variations offers a rare opportunity to hear the composer in "abstract" mode.

This is a wonderful CD of very much neglected music of Respighi, the ballet score is exotic, shimmering and thunderous showing how great Respighi is at handling a big orchestra and filling it full of colour, but for me the long forgotten masterpiece here is Metamorphoseon, just listen to the opening theme on a good seperate system and you'll be swept away in Respighi's sound world. Both works are full of of Respighi's great mind for melody.

These are rarely heard pieces by Respighi, and in fact this is the world premiere recordings for both of them. As far as I can tell, they both benefit from excellent performances.

Unfortunately, however, the quality of the download files is marred by clicks, pops and interference on an all-too-regular basis which make them almost impossible to listen to.

No doubt the CD is first class, but if Amazon wants to get in on the iTunes action, it will need to do better than this. Full marks for a swift refunding of my money, however.
