Respighi: The Birds; Ancient Airs & Dances; Canzone e Danza
(from Brazilian Expressions)

Antal Dorati
London Sym. Orchestra
Philharmonia Hungarica


(Birds) “vividness of detail particularly suits Dorati’s spirited account of The Birds, bringing pictorial piquancy of great charm and strongly projected dance rhythms” (Penguin Guide 3 stars)

(Ancient Airs) “The Hungarian string players are exceptionally gifted technically, and their intonation …is absolutely perfect. A vast improvement, both technically and musically, on the earlier recordings….. My favourite movement, the anonymous Italiana from Suite III, is played with great affection and warmth, and the pizzicato notes of the lower strings sound lusciously vibrant. If you like old music tastefully renovated, beautifully played and magnificently recorded, this is the record for you” (Gramophone)
