Respighi, Pines of Rome 0:00

Share url: Play whole list

In 1924 Respighi wrote a second symphonic poem, again inspired by Rome, not by its monuments but by its pines. The first theme is dedicated to the pines of Villa Borghese and to the children who play under their shadow. The Villa has a variety of trees. The finest pines are located around Piazza di Siena (image on the left) but many other pines can be found in its southern and western parts, while the older part of the Villa, behind the Casino, is an Italian garden with fewer pines. This is a wonderful performance, with great bras playing.
