All thanks for this rarity go to Jean-Luc
Though the Symphony-Concerto is cast in the conventional three movements, their proportions are unusual: the outer movements are equal in duration, while the central movement is a vast, complex Scherzo replete with wild ideas and a thrilling extended cadenza. The work begins with a relatively slow movement that proceeds with the character of a march, propelled by an ascending four-note theme. The solo cellist…

Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Chandos) Ottorino Respighi – Belkis Queen Of Sheba & Metamorphoseon

front-small-boxset
Dont ask me, my friends, why this recording sounds phenomenal outstanding, although it is a digital production. Hear and judge by yourself.

‘Belkis, Queen of Sheba’ was the Romantic musical equivalent of those Hollywood Roman empire/Bible epics like ‘The Ten Commandments’ or ‘Spartacus’. It has never been recorded complete, but the suite of four movements extracted by the composer gives a good idea of what a spectacle it must have been. It sounds a lot like movie music, in fact, and that’s a complement. ‘Metamorphoseon’, by contrast, is a brilliant theme and variations on a Gregorian tune that was commissioned for the 50th anniversary of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Its neglect is inexplicable, unless it’s due to the fact that it requires an organ at the end, which makes it impractical for many orchestras. These performances are thrilling, and so is the sound. –David Hurwitz

Surely, the angels are jealous.
This is THE BEST from the Great One. I defy anyone, after listening to this, to dispute the fact that this man’s voice was the most majestic ever to grace the planet. He was the Mount Everest … the pinnacle of tenors. If anyone ever deserved the title “Maestro” it was him.
