CD Reviews

Vibrant performances of Respighi Transcriptions
mahlerii@aol.com | Richfield, MN | 04/30/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Respighi's transcriptions of old lute pieces and ancient manuscripts has been one of his favored works. Many times we only get to hear the third suite, or the first and third. On this nicely priced CD, Ricco Saccani conducts all three. The sound quality is quite good, and the performances are sprightly and lively. The lyrical moments are relaxed but do not drag. The warm sound is a big plus also, although some might find the sound too close-up, but I find it invigorating. These perfomances are not too rowdy, however, and give pleasure, and for the price, why not try it?"

"The Ancient Airs and Dances are a favourite to many a Respighi fan. This is another standout Respighi CD from Naxos. You couldn't find a better recording anywhere of these lively arrangements of Renaissance lute music. The stand out track is Bergamasca. Parts of it could be used in a movie Western, such as The Magnificent Seven and not sound out of place. Marvellous playing and recording that reveals all the music's sparkling details."
