Eduardo Mata had a special flair for music of this period, and his Respighi record is one of the best. The coupling is interesting. Whereas most recordings would include The Fountains of Rome, Mata chooses instead the evocative and rarely heard Brazilian Impressions. This exotic piece contains a particularly creepy musical illustration of a snake pit, followed by a zippy Brazilian dance finale. The other two works are performed with sledgehammer impact and uninhibited brilliance. Dorian's recording is an audiophile's dream, offering both analytical detail and warmth within a huge dynamic range. --David Hurwitz

By Ralph Moore TOP 500 REVIEWER on April 13, 2012
Format: Audio CD
As much as I like this superb recording, I don't think it is quite as sharp or impressive as my favourite version, the RPO playing under Batiz for Naxos which just has the edge in both execution and sound. Nonetheless, this is still one of the best accounts available. It is quite extraordinary how good so many regional or city orchestras in the US are and the Dallas Symphony displays its virtuosity to advantage in these showpiece suites. Two years after this recording, Eduardo Mata died in a plane accident but he left us many highly recommendable interpretations and this is certainly one of them. You can faintly hear him driving on the orchestra with little emphatic grunts during "l'Ottobrata" and he secures some wonderfully graduated dynamics to contrast the softer passages with the big razzmatazz; the section from the middle of that movement with the mandolin, distant horn and solo violin to the end is very atmospheric. By contrast, the thunderous climax of "La Befana" really delivers.

Apart from the obvious price advantage to buying the Naxos disc, this one might be less attractive to anyone wanting a representative Respighi selection in that it eschews the standard programme of the three most popular works, "Roman Festivals", "The Pines of Rome" and "The Fountains of Rome", by substituting the less frequently heard "Brazilian Impressions" for the usual third item. Of course, that could be a positive inducement to the more seasoned collector who already has the basics. The opening nocturne is subtle, gentle and impressionistic, sounding like a close cousin to Ravel's Spanish-flavoured tone poems - so expect more of a languorous, warm-bath immersion rather than thrills.

This CD has the most solid and true deep pipe organ of any of the recordings of Pines of Rome that I know. It leaves the Telarc version a distant second.
