Children cavorting in the park of the Villa Borghese, Christian choral song echoing from a catacomb, summer night magic on the Gianicolo, and finally the glory and pounding violence of a triumphal procession on the Via Appia – and everywhere pine trees as silent witnesses: in his «Pini di Roma» of 1924, Ottorino Respighi clothed the past and present of his hometown in brilliant colours. Summoning a nightingale, Josef Strauss lets «village swallows from Austria» chirrup. He airs a few secrets that transform the sounds of nature into fascinating music.
