I bought this purely to get the Ancient Airs and Dances Suite 2, which features an old favourite of mine. I had purchased a Respighi C.D. many years ago, which featured the Suite numbers 1 and 3, thinking that the Bergamasca would be included in that selection. It wasn't, and I was most disappointed.
Everything on this C.D. is up to my expectations, and I'm equally pleased with the rendition of The Birds.

Good recording, enjoyed this. CD arrived with a cracked box, which was a bit of a nuisance, but otherwise, no complaints.

Although I love classical music, my musical knowledge is not sufficient to go into technical analysis of it. I was familiar with Respighi through "The Pines of Rome" and "The Fountains of Rome". These used to be dismissed as "lightweight" pieces but I liked them nonetheless. "Ancient Airs and Dances" is relaxing and intricate and the recording is top quality.

What a find! Fabulous CD. I'm amazed which pieces have become the most famous since there seem to be far more wonderful ones here. Foolishly, I hadn't realized he was so modern, witty and joyful. I want my daughter to get married now so that she can use the Bergamasca, arrive dancing and exit to a cacophony of carillons.

I bought this after hearing it played live at a concert just before Christmas. A lovely CD which I'm sure I'll listen to over and over again. Love it!

This is the version of the Ancient Airs and Dances by which one might judge all the others. Respighi wove in such subtle, persuasive and emotionally satisfying melodies here. Antal Dorati, renowned for his meticulous preparation and direction of the orchestra, brings out every colour with conviction. This recording of the suites sets it apart; it is moving, syncopated with ancient dance rhythms and exciting in its major-minor shifts. All human moods are evoked. You'll most likely return to it over and over and never tire of its freshness, inventiveness, maestoso and beautiful tunes. The sound engineering is beautifully balanced in every department of the orchestra; the dynamic range and sonority will reward those with good audio gear. I do not hesitate to unequivocally recommend this gorgeous recording.
