Ottorino Respighi:
Trittico botticelliano(1927)
Il tramonto (The Sunset) (1914)
Vetratedi chiesa (Church Windows) (1926)
In their acclaimed series of Ottorino Respighi’s orchestral music, John Neschlingand OrchestrePhilharmoniqueRoyal de Liegehave transported listeners to destinations as diverse as Brazil (Impressione brasiliane) and King Solomon’s Jerusalem (Belkis, Regina di Saba) as well as giving a thrilling account of the composer’s monumental Sinfonia drammatica–a score of epic proportions for a correspondingly large-scale orchestra. That performance earned a Critic’s Choice in American Record Guideand an ‘Empfehlung’ on German website Klassik-Heute.de, and throughout the series Neschlingand his team have received high praise for incisive interpretations and luxurious playing.

The present disc brings together three of Respighi’s more popular works, besides the perennial Roman trilogy. Scored for small orchestra, his Botticellian Triptych has all the freshness of the famous paintings of the Renaissance master: Spring, Adoration of the Magiand Birth of Venus. Subtitled ‘poemettolirico’ Il tramontowas originally composed for voice and string quartet, but is often performed with a larger complement of strings, as here. Soprano Anna Caterina Antonaccibreathes impassioned life into Shelley’s Romantic poem The Sunset(translated into Italian) in which love is brutally cut short by death. The disc closes with the four Church Windows, three of which originated as piano preludes based on Gregorian themes. In 1925 Respighi composed a fourth companion piece, and recast the set as a suite for orchestra. Only then did he give titles to the movements, so that his lavishly orchestrated windows are in fact imaginary scenes, rather than any existing church windows.

Recording: March–April 2016 at the Salle Philharmonique, Liege, Belgium
