Description: This venerable release contained the world-premiere recordings at the time of the two "neo-baroque" concerti, coupled with free transcriptions of two Italian baroque composers' works to make up a program on Respighi's "Return to the Past" - his consuming interest in the roots of Italian music which was such an unusual one for a composer in his time and place. With normal catalogue attrition, only the Concerto a cinque is otherwise still available today. Ingolf Turban (violin), English Chamber Orchestra; Marcello Viotti. Original 1990 release.
