Ottorino Respighi: Antiche danze ed arie - 1st suite (Pocketscore)
Antiche danze ed arie - 1st suite (Pocketscore)
Ottorino Respighi (1879 - 1936)
Traditional foundations in new tonal splendour - the leading representative of new Italian instrumental music, Ottorino Respighi, transcribed the original lute versions for large orchestra in a masterly fashion.
Thanks to his compositional analysis of tradition, Respighi made a substantial contribution to the revival and rediscovery of forgotten musical treasures. The three orchestral suites based on lute settings from the Italian Renaissance and Italian Early Baroque period, however, have not only been influenced by the historicism of later revivals of original texts. Respighi makes the intimate original pieces also shine in repackaged versions for large orchestra, thus achieving wonderful, brilliant sound effects!
