There are several CDs featuring Respighi’s Ancient Airs and Dances, so take time to look over the choices. The link is the particular recording I have and I highly recommend it. Some of the CD recordings are somewhat rare and command a high price so be careful when you order. Know what you are getting.
Be sure to listen to Suite #2, not available in all recordings.
As usual, I’ve added a positive review from Amazon.
“Respighi’s transcriptions of old lute pieces and ancient manuscripts has been one of his favored works. Many times we only get to hear the third suite, or the first and third. On this nicely priced CD, Ricco Saccani conducts all three. The sound quality is quite good, and the performances are sprightly and lively. The lyrical moments are relaxed but do not drag. The warm sound is a big plus also, although some might find the sound too close-up, but I find it invigorating. These performances are not too rowdy, however, and give pleasure, and for the price, why not try it? “
