The relationship between Martucci and Respighi was one of teacher and pupil. Born in Bologna in 1879, Respighi frequented its Liceo Musicale and attended Martucci's composition class, from which he eventually graduated. Both works are rapturously lyrical, with gorgeous orchestration.
"A praiseworthy achievement in every respect.… Madalin sings both works beautifully."—Gramophone
"A glorious work [and] a most lovely record. Recommended with all possible enthusiasm."—Penguin Guide
