It is a very good recording for any Respighi admirers or searching for unkonwn post-romantic music.
Respighi written this work in his early period. It is written for very large orchestra (quadruple orchestra). And there are many influences from Mahler. Especially in climaxes of the last movement, Allegro impetuoso. With its' orchestration, it is similar to R. Strauss's orchestration. And in the second movement, Andante, there are beautiful impressionist Debussyian colours. But even so, in this work, there are twinkles of his future that he will write Pini de Roma, Feste e Fontane di Roma.
I like especially the last movement, with it's contrasts between very symphonic and very calm passages.
The performance is very good. This is one of the best recordings of Slovak P O. And Daniel Nazareth's reading of this hard work is amazing. Even so the sound quality is very good.
This is a very worthy listening, and I think, at this price, you can buy this without hesitate.
