About

A dreamy portrait of Respighi, on the music of the three famous Roman poems.

Who was Ottorino Respighi? An Italian composer, born in Bologna in 1879. Nature endowed him with the most prodigious gifts and he quickly became the leading Italian Symphonist in the first half of the 20th century. But today he is generally thought of as the composer of large scale descriptive works, because of his brilliant use of orchestral colours, his skilful evocation of mood, and the international success of his three Roman Tone Poems; the Feste Romane, the Pines of Rome, and Fountains of Rome.
