Review of Respighi's Orchestral Works, Vol.2 (conducted by Francesco La Vecchia)
I usually write self-contained reviews on my blog, but this one made it to Amazon first, so I thought I would post the link here. Respighi is a wonderful Italian composer, unfairly dismissed as a "technicolor marvel," or a composer of surface charm. This disc suggests the incredible range of his talent, from musical evocations of Church Windows to a quasi-Baroque violin concerto. Read the review and buy the MP3 album for only $5.99!
