Performance:   Sonics:  
I can only state that I agree wholeheartedly with some of Castors comments except that I think this is even better disc that the exceptional other Respighi he mentions.Sonically and variety this would be my first choise Respighi disc on sacd.Musically more rewarding than the Trilogy..The Gnomes (Gnomettes?) is a smasher.The playing , tone and performance as well as the helpfull lines notes are top notch.BUY this sacd. stereo review.
