Respighi’s Roman Trilogy

12 May 2023

In the Concert Hall | Sydney Symphony Orchestra | Classical Music

This bold, evocative masterpiece will transport you to Rome, and all the life, colour and excitement of that famous city.

Glorious Landscapes

From the first bright hit of brass, there can be no doubt that this is Respighi’s Rome. Full of breathless excitement and cinematic grandeur, the Roman Trilogy is big, sweeping and bold – a huge orchestral experience. Moving from the monumental to soft and seductive, it captures, like any great journey, the heightened sensory power of delight and discovery.

Conductor John Wilson’s recent recording of the Roman Trilogy was lauded by BBC Music Magazine: “There are dozens of versions of Respighi’s Roman Trilogy available, but none better than this”.
