Great recording and superb performance
Hard to believe that you are listening to a non-professional orchestra. Performances match the best. Sound is spectacular - love the unexpected rear cannel trumpet work in Roman Festivals.
Respighi Roman Triligy
A Surround Sound Spectacular!
Respighi Roman Trilogy - Franz Anton Krager, conductor - Texas Music Festival Orchestra
The Respighi Roman Trilogy is an amazing work. The performance here is very solid. It is well mastered but the original recording is not optimum.
An Average Respighi "Roman Trilogy" in Two-Channel DSD64
An overly-dry acoustic robs this production of the lushness and sparkle I associate with this Respighi trilogy. That sonic handicap is too bad and no fault of the ensemble, who perform with enthusiasm-tinged competence. One interpretive quibble: Reiner is the only conductor in my experience who seems to have understood that Roman legionnaires bearing a full field pack are unlikely to have been able to quick-march down the Appian Way. Krager has them on the dead run in "Pines"--though he's far from being the Lone Ranger in that regard.
