Although Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 2 from 1879 is overshadowed by his No. 1, its lyrical and dramatic passages both display extraordinary qualities. Respighi’s »Symphonic Poems« from the 1910s and 1920s, which take up the motifs of Rome’s pine trees and fountains, unveil the musical magic of late Romantic orchestral works.
