Ottorino Respighi In-depth Biography

An Italian composer of orchestral works, vocal music, and operas who based his music on church modes and plainchant; known for his orchestral arrangements. Respighi}'s music may perhaps be best described as romantic-impressionist, because the melodies are extended and fully developed and the orchestral sound has the richness of an impressionist landscape. His two best-known (and probably his best) works are The Fountains of Rome} and The Pines of Rome}. Less known but very rewarding to hear are the works in which he reset older music, such as the fine Ancient Airs and Dances} (three sets, 1917, 1924, 1932), or those in which he used a rather poetic interpretation of ancient Greek and Gregorian modality, such as Concerto Gregoriano for Violin & Orchestra} (1921) and the interesting Concerto in Modo Misolidio for Piano & Orchestra} (1925). A fan of Pines} and Fountains} may also wish to check out Respighi}'s Roman Festivals}, Brazilian Impressions}, and Church Windows}. ~ Blue Gene Tyranny, All Music Guide
