"Considering all the versions of these tone poems and the great orchestras and conductors from great cities Who have recorded them, who could've thought an orchestra from Oslo, Norway could upstage just about every performance on CD. Music is truly universal. A brilliant, colorful, vivid and sumptuous performance and acoustic. Spectacular sound!! Janson an the orchestra have full measure of these pieces. the wind and brass are marvelous. Strong Mediterranean atmosphere and a bittersweet nostalgiac feeling pervades. This is one of the 2 best interpretations of the COMPLETE Roman Trilogy I have ever heard. The other being Dutoit and The Montreal Symphonique. There is such detail that in some parts it all sounds new to me. This one is a BIG-TIME KEEPER."
