Alessandro Crudele & London Philharmonic Orchestra - Respighi - BBC Music Magazine

A cascading energy and brilliant darts of light suffuse conductor Alessandro Crudele's view of the Villa Borghese ...

Textures are light yet pulsating alive, with hyper-alert responses from the London Philharmonic players.

'Pines of the Janiculum' has a lissome sensuality ... and in 'Appian Way' Crudele cleverly makes the approach of the consular army just as interesting as its arrival, the procession evolving pleasure, not a mindless decibel assault.
