Program Notes/Il Programma
Unlike the more austere Respighi works, this is a short captivating concert appetizer which shows the more lighthearted side of Respighi. As his first serious work for small orchestra, the Serenata is considered a precursor of Respighi's later, more famous works "per piccola ochestra" such as Trittico Botticelliano (Botticelli Pictures) and Gli Uccelli (The Birds). It is scored for flute, oboe, clarinet and strings.
