Respighi: Roman Trilogy
Respighi's 'Roman trilogy' consists of Pines of Rome, Fountains of Rome and Roman Festivals. The vivid colours and sounds of Imperial Roman life are evoked in these works, from the violence in the Coliseum to the legions marching with grim determination along the Appian Way and to children playing around a fountain on a hot Roman summer's day.
