Fountains of Rome

No work better embodies Norwegian national romanticism than Edvard Grieg's Piano Concerto. He composed this work at the age of 24, during a long holiday in the Norwegian countryside, just after the birth of his only daughter.

When Respighi left his native Bologna for Rome in 1913, he was struck by two things: the magnificent fountains and the umbrella-shaped pine trees that could be seen everywhere on the horizon. He dedicated a symphonic poem in four movements to them. The final movement of Pini di Roma recalls the former glory of the Roman Empire. Respighi's masterful orchestration techniques – with dazzling brass and powerful organ – make the ground tremble beneath the feet of the advancing legions.
