Respighi followed his famous orchestral set of Antiche danze ed arie (transcriptions from lute tablature), with some for the piano. He also transcribed others: the first by the Genovese, Simone Molinaro, Balletto ditto il Conte Orlando bears a strong resemblance to the first movement of The Birds, as does the Gagliarda by Vincenzo Galileo (father of the famous scientist). Of the other pieces, the Notturno from the Six Pieces has a distinctly Rachmaninovian feel. The F minor Sonata (1897–8) is a rarity, and it is difficult to imagine a performance that is more persuasive than this—at any price level. Konstantin Scherbakov is a pianist of quality, combining the highest musicianship with sensitivity and refinement. He is excellently recorded too.
