The Italian composer Carlo Alberto Pizzini studied composition with Ottorino Respighi. He wrote in almost every form, from chamber music through music for choir, orchestra and band to incidental music for theatre, television and films. As a conductor he gave concerts all over the world, usually including his own compositions. This recording features a number of Pizzini's most important orchestral works. The symphonic poem 'Al Piemonte' was inspired by the history, the natural beauty and the famously zealous work-ethic of the Piedmont region of northern Italy, where the Roman-born Pizzini lived and worked for many years. When Respighi saw his young pupil's score for 'Il poema delle Dolomiti' he scribbled on it 'Bravo!', adding: 'They'll say to you what they said to me at Carnegie Hall in New York after they played 'Pines of Rome': 'Compliments to you and to the roof!' (because it had withstood the huge battery of sound).
