Product description

Respighi: Feste romane, Pini di Roma / Maazel, Cleveland Orchestra

Amazon.ca

More sonic blockbusters from the Decca vaults. Both the Respighi tone poems in particular receive stunningly realistic and wide-ranging treatment from the recording engineers, while the Clevelanders respond with jaw-dropping discipline and sophistication. In Feste romane, Maazel uncovers more ear-burning detail within Respighi's kaleidoscopic orchestral canvas than any other rival (listening with the miniature score to hand is nothing short of a revelation). The results are intensely refreshing, if perhaps just a little heartless. Similarly, Pines of Rome brings another giddily assured display, aptly overwhelming in its sense of all-engulfing spectacle, yet ravishingly beautiful too in the fragrant third section (at the close of which Respighi magically incorporates the sound of a genuine nightingale). The luxuriant sheen of the Cleveland strings both here and in the gorgeous third movement of the orchestral suite from Rimsky-Korsakov's final opera The Golden Cockerel remains a thing of wonder, as are the breathtaking co-ordination and bite these artists bring to King Dodon's demise in the closing tableau. Elsewhere, Maazel wrings every drop of "once upon a time" wonder from Rimsky's fantastical inspiration, and Decca's 1979 sound is fabulously rich and glowing to match. --Andrew Achenbach
