Album: The Pines… The Fountains of Rome

Arturo Toscanini and the NBC Symphony Orchestra/Respighi. The Pines… The Fountains of Rome. RCA Victor LM-1768, 1956(?). (on vinyl, from a thrift store)

I will buy any Toscanini record I find, no matter what Romantic crap is on it.  It’s a condition I have.

“The Fountains of Rome” is terrible.  “The Pines of Rome” sounds like a 1930’s film score; it’s not something I like, but it’s good music, and of course a great performance.

5/10 (Indifferent).
