Three Italian composers of the last century, the Pizzetti items on CD for the first time: brightly scored, exotic music of wide appeal, rather filmic and ‘Wild West’. Respighi’s gift for description is subtler, ‘three Botticelli pictures’ beautifully imagined. Rota’s crisp and clean lines are a palate-cleanser in terms of elegance and vitality. Fine performances, the SRO/Gardelli tapings especially valuable.
