Misc. Comments

Sometimes described (not by the composer so far as I can tell???) as a symphonic poem. Orchestration of an earlier piano work. (BBC sometimes broadcasts a Stokowski/Radiotelevisione italiana. Orchestra di Torino broadcast of this work from 1955 (8'40" in duration according to the CADENSA database (the BBC Sound and Moving Image Catalogue), also a recording conducted by Robert Ziegler lasting 8'11" from 1997 (same database); Daniels' "Orchestral Music: A Handbook" estimates 9 minutes so it is difficult to say if that is just a guess or if the three existing recordings- those conducted by Stokowski, Ziegler and Adriano - are cut (or too fast).- Schissel
