Eiji Oue. Grammy® Nominated: Best Engineered Album, Classical Keith O. Johnson, Engineer. Dazzling orchestral colors, is one one way to describe the music of Ottorino Respighi. Belkis, Queen of Sheba was conceived as an evening-long ballet with singing whose lavishness has kept it from view since its La Scala premiere. Johnson’s stunning HDCD-sonics make Respighi’s greatest hit The Pines of Rome (with extra brass and organ!) a dazzling conclusion to this unusual, inventive program. Belkis, Queen of Sheba – Suite: Solomon’s Dream. The Dance of Belkis at Dawn.

Only 3 left in stock (more on the way). This is an excellently played album that stacks up to any of the bigger name orchestras. The selections include a standard (The Pines) and two lesser-knowns (Belkis and The Gnomes). Oue is a conductor who lets no detail slip past his attention and his orchestra is first-rate from top to bottom.

Eiji Oue and the Minnesota Orchestra released this highly-praised, Grammy nominated recording of Belkis, Queen of Sheba in 2000. Belkis was conceived by composer Ottorino Respighi as an evening-long ballet with singing whose lavishness has kept it from view since its La Scala premiere.

Ottorino Respighi Composer. Belkis, Queen of Sheba, War Dance. Ottorino Respighi Composer. Belkis, Queen of Sheba, The Dance of Belkis at Dawn. Belkis, Queen of Sheba, Orgiastic Dance. Ballata delle gnomidi, 'Ballad of the Gnomes'. Oue draws playing at once powerful and refined from his orchestra‚ and refinement is one of the elements in his reading of The Pines of Rome‚ generally light and transparent in its textures‚ however heavy. The recorded sound is brilliant too‚ though with the orchestra set slightly back in a warm acoustic‚ it cannot quite match the finest rival versions.

Belkis, Queen of Sheba was amongst Respighi’s last works. It was a full length ballet which used a large orchestra, an offstage band and numerous Eastern instruments, a chorus and narrator. At the premiere given at La Scala in 1932 an estimated 1000 performers were involved. Respighi’s opulent score identifies the composer as a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov. The Suite was prepared by Respighi himself and published in 1934. This is the premiere performance of the Suite in the exact form specified by the composer and uses the tenor instead of a trumpet in the last movement
