Description: This almost equally old Respighi re-issue offers a 1922 cantata of 45 minutes on texts by Armenian poet Gostan Zarian whose evocation of spring is both lyrical and rapturous and quasi-Impressionistic in style. The other large-scale work is the 1919 ballet score "The Magic Pot", which was commissioned by Diaghilev and pays tribute to Grechaninov, Arensky, Anton Rubinstein and other lesser-known Russian composers.
