By I. Giles TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This disc, mercifully well recorded in the 1970s, at last brings a performance that can stand comparison with the famous one made by Reiner and the CPO in about 1960 and now available in fine SACD format. I refer to the two Roman pieces which are the real meat of this disc. The remaining items are not really in the same class of epic inspiration but are still played here as well as can be imagined.

The key defining moment in the Pines and Festivals is the last movement of the Pines. It is crucial that the correct tempo is chosen. This should represent the might of the Roman army marching from a far distance, hazy effects vital here, and probably coming from Egypt (indicative cor anglais solo). From there the piece is all about overlapping swathes of sound building up remorselessly over a steady marching beat. The steady beat is crucial (bass drum). Too fast and it becomes a jolly romp home. Too much detail on the beat within the beat and the same damage is done. Very few conductors can resist the urge for volume and speed for this ending and consequently lessen the impact disastrously. Reiner does it best. Karajan is in the same class though and has the advantage of newer recording. Muti and Pappano are among the others who are most successful with this piece and refuse to hurry.

There are, of course, many other key points but none so crucial as the ending. Recorded nightingales are generally well done and so is the distant solo trumpet heard earlier. Karajan is playing to his strengths on this disc. The BPO are pretty well a dream team with this sort of drilled precision and mellifluous playing. That combination is what makes this a fine Roman pairing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking Respighi From Karajan's Berliners 29 July 2007
By Philoctetes TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Some of von Karajan's late 70s recordings for DG are simply stunning in every regard and the 2/3 of the Roman Trilogy on offer are a match for anything more recent. To be fair, they rather overshadow the others morsels on this CD, but I for one have no interest in the sneering sometimes directed at this full strings version of Albinoni's - or should that be Giazotto's - Adagio. It certainly carries more emotion at this temperature and tempo, being little more than a trifle if done 'authentically'.

If you can live without Roman festivals, this is the one to get. Karajan fans will already know what to do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Listening 14 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fountains and Pines of Rome has always been one of our favourites, and this, with both, more than does them justice.
Berlin Phil under Karajan is great, and the addition of extra numbers certainly makes it a lovely bargain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect background music for a visit to Rome 15 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this record after listening to a rather tortured rendition by an amateur orchestra in Cardiff, but came to appreciate it fully a year later, after i visited Rome. It is a very unusual city, and the music - seems to me - beautifully encapsulates the timeless charm of the place.

4.0 out of 5 stars An unexpected joy 28 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
No weaknesses on this collation. Jenkins used Respighi's 'March on the Appian Way' as the basis 4 the opening section of The Armed Man' .
