Respighi: The Pines of Rome; The Fountains of Rome (Arturo Toscanini Conducting NBC Symphony; Rca Victor: 12" Lp in 13-Page Picture-Text Allium)

How utter can perfection get? The moonlight gleams, the nightingale sings, and Respighi’s ghostly Roman legionaries come up the ancient Appian Way in a thudding, clanging quickstep that will make your hair stand straight up. The fidelity is a tingling wonder, Toscanini a master magician, the combination something positively awesome.
