Respighi: Belkis, Queen of Sheba, Metamorphoseon – Philharmonia Orchestra, Geoffrey Simon

‘The ballet-suite Belkis, Queeen of Sheba is a score that set the pattern for later Hollywood biblical film music; but Metamorphoseon is a taut and sympathetic set of variations. It has been ingeniously based on a medieval theme, and through a group of cadenza variations relaxes the tension of argument in the middle, the brilliance and variety of the writing have much in common with Elgar’s Enigma. Superb playing from the Philharmonia, treated to one of the finest recordings that even Chandos has produced, outstanding in every way.’

Penguin Guide to Compact Discs

"...Superb playing from the Philharmonia, treated to one of the finest recordings that even Chandos has produced. Indeed, this mid-1980’s  CD recieved one of many Gramophone  Enginneering Awards that Chandos won in the 1980’s 1900’s and sounds just as spectacular today."
