RESPIGHI Rossiniana

Respighi revisited this source of musical delights a few years later when he created an orchestral suite he called Rossiniana. Complete in 1925, this time Respighi treated the original material more freely, being unbound by the limitations of a ballet libretto. It is a very colorful score (typical of Respighi) in which Rossini's music seems to be absorbed into the more modern style of Respighi. The four movements are: " Capri e Taormina (Barcarola e Siciliana)"; "Lamento"; "Intermezzo"; and "Tarantella 'Puro sangue'."
