By Liege Royal Philharmonic and Neschling. By Ottorino Respighi (1879-1936). Classical. 1 hybrid super audio listening CD. Published by BIS Records (NX.BIS-2130).

Item Number: NX.BIS-2130

Conductor John Neschling leads the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liege on his third Ottorino Respighi disc for BIS. Ballata delle gnomidi (The Ballad of the Gnomes), from 1920 was inspired by a poem depicting satanic rituals, sexual abandonment and blood sacrifice. Metamorphoseon (1930) consists of a theme and twelve variations or 'modes'. Despite his doubts about it, the work is now considered a masterpiece. The disc closes with the suite from Belkis, Regina di Saba, a full-length ballet scored for a massive orchestra but slimmed down for the intended-for-concert-use suite.
