Reading post 7 I became aware that I own, but neglected, the Bongiovanni Cd containing the orchestral Suites n.5 ("Tortona", Perosi's small birth town) and Suite n.7 ( "Torino", which I have in an alternative Nuova Era recording).
I was prompted to hear again, and more attentively, and found the -rather concise- "Suite n.5" VERY playful and worthy of more than an occasional reading.   

Great to learn that Perosi - I only owned an LP with some of his Masses in the past, otherwise he's probably unplayed in my country - is from Tortona. I was staying there with friends for a weekend, last year, on our way back home from a longer stay in Pistoia. And liked it. :-)

… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.  RVW, 1948
