Product Description

Product Description

Impressioni brasiliane, another orchestral triptych (in a similar vein to The Fountains, Pines and Festival of Rome), communicates Respighi's impressions from the summer he spent in Rio de Janeiro - the composer was fascinated by the popular music of Brazil.

La Boutique fantasque (The Fantastic Toyshop), was composed in 1918 for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, and performed more than 1000 times during the following few years. Respighi's score was based on piano pieces by Rossini.

Review

'Neschling's glowing colours and instinctive rhythms are simply breath-taking...it's all so delicately aspirated and the ultra-refined sound is a joy to behold. Couple that with sensitive, finely honed playing and you have your very own piece of paradise. Elegant and engaging; Respighi performances don't come much better than this.' --MusicWeb International

Having relocated from Sao Paulo to Liege, John Neschling provides a follow up to his disc of Respighi triptych with a coupling that demonstrates the composer's sheer versatility and conceptually when writing for orchestra. Hopefully there will be more Respighi to follow from this source. --IRR, Sept'14

Program, Interpretation, Musicianship, Sound Quality all 5-star 3 Aug. 2014
By Ethan E. Matthes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The second work on this disc requires no introduction. The Brazilian Impressions though has been neglected on disc. And I had to look the featured orchestra: The Orchestre Philharmonique Royal De Liege is located in Belgium. No forgetting them now... Not only are they a strong professional orchestra, their conductor should know a thing or two about Brazilian culture (in reference to the Impressions) having previously led and recorded with the Sao Paulo orchestra. If you were wondering, Respighi still does sound Italian played by this Belgian ensemble. My ears are very happy with the purchase and hope the same artists and BIS will team up again in the future.
