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.
A Surround Sound Spectacular!
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 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.
