XM Moment: The Rest of Respighi .....

Quick ! ..... Name a work by Ottorino Respighi ! ..... Chances are, you did not think of Concierto Gregoriano ..... HERE is a snippet of that 1921 concerto for orchestra and violin, from emusic.com, performed by Sir Edward Downes and the BBC Philharmonic, and violinist Lydia Mordkovitch. It's a work I had never heard before, and I loved it.
