Description
Recorded in the mid-to-late-1950s in London's Kingsway Hall, these vivid performances led by Italian conductor Alceo Galliera (1910–96) include Ottorino Respighi's four-part tone poem The Pines of Rome, his setting of Gioachino Rossini's La boutique fantasque (done in 1918 for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes), and the less often heard Brazilian Impressions. Using indigenous melodies, it forms a musical snapshot of the composer's visit to Brazil in 1927.

"The soundstage is wide and deep, the dynamic range impressive, and subtle atmospheric details of delicate percussion effects are captured with amazing clarity.… Just listen to the sinister slithering he brings to the second of the Brazilian Impressions, 'Butantan,' … a reference to a venomous snake, and to the way the Dies Irae chant is woven into the orchestral fabric. And in this same movement, listen to the Philharmonia's superb first bassoon player in his difficult solo…. Highly recommended."—Fanfare
