MAAZEL Respighi: Feste Romane · Pini di Roma · Rimsky-Korsakov

Lorin Maazel

“In its day [mid-1970s] Maazel’s Feste romane was something of a revelation: the Decca recording is extremely sophisticated in its colour and detail, and Respighi’s vividly evocative sound picture is brought glitteringly to life. The orchestral playing shows matching virtuosity, and the final scene, with its gaudy clamour of trumpets and snatches of melody from the local organ grinder, is given a kaleidoscopic imagery exactly as the composer intended. The Pines of Rome is given a strong, direct characterisation … breathtaking demonstration vividness.”
