The Music

Respighi: Church Windows
Journeys from delicate to blazing. The second movement sonically depicts an epic celestial battle.


Respighi: Rossiniana
Dark and evocative. Respighi based this suite on Rossini’s piano music from his collection Péchés de vieillesse (Sins of Old Age).


Wolf-Ferrari: Susanna’s Secret
Lilting and whimsical. Susanna’s newlywed husband suspects her of infidelity—will he discover her trespasses or will he be burned by the truth?
