Ottorino Respighi was an Italian composer and musicologist. Respighi is best known for his orchestral music, particularly the three Roman tone poems: Fountains of Rome, Pines of Rome, and Roman Festivals. He also wrote a number of operas, the most famous of which is La Fiamma.

In addition to being a renowned composer and conductor, Respighi was also a notable musicologist. His interest in Italian music of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries led him to compose works inspired by the music of these periods.

Music composed by Respighi includes:
