Composer who wrote many works of music. Among his most well known is Fountains and Pines of Rome. Known to make the strings and woodwinds learn and play all known scales in his music while writing scores to unleash the full and awesome power of the low brass section to the ears of the general public. Know to give low brass players heart attacks and odd feelings of pleasure whilst playing.....Bass Trombonists and Tubists be aware of sudden paralyzation to the extremities of the body due to lack of oxygen.
1. Did you hear about the Trombone player who died playing Fountains?!?
2. Ottorino Respighi was a mad man!!
