The fourth installment of the complete orchestral works O. Respighi include some of his most popular works - the Ancient Airs and Dances and the Rossiniana. Respighi's imaginative use of timbre and first-class orchestration permeate these engaging works, which are skillfully interpreted by an all-Italian cast. About the first volume in the series, The Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma under Francesco La Vecchia certainly plays very well, with the brass fully on top of the numerous passages in which they are mercilessly exposed.
