$20.00 USD

Columbia (LP)

Jacket NM / LP NM

This superb LP – a beautiful collector’s copy – from Columbia (QCX 10163, Italian pressing, blue/silver label, mono) features the Orchestra Alessandro Scarlatti under the direction of Franco Caracciolo in an enchanting album devoted to two scores by Ottorino Respighi.

The exact contents are as follows:

Gli Uccelli – Suite per piccola orchestra “The Birds”

A1

No. 1: Preludio

A2

No. 2: La Colomba

A3

No. 3: La Gallina

A4

No. 4: L'Usignuolo

A5

No. 5: Il Cuccú

Trittico Botticelliano

B1

No. 1: La Primavera

B2

No. 2: L'Adorazione Dei Magi

B3

No. 3: La Nastica Di Venere

These are remarkably inventive scores that should be repertoire staples. Caracciolo and his crack Orchestra Alessandro Scarlatti capture all the color brilliance, and piquancy of these delightful works. This album was recorded in September 1955 and sounds splendid.

There are informative liner notes on the reverse side of the jacket by Luigi Pestalozza, printed in Italian only. The lovely cover design is uncredited.

This copy is in particularly fine condition – one would likely have to wait a long time before encountering another in similar shape.
