Famous French Overtures

Notes & Reviews:

Sparkling accounts of famous French overtures, rare and familiar, all recorded in 1960, and part of Eloquence's magnum opus, the'Decca Ansermet Legacy'.

Penguin Guide
This recording of once-popular French overtures was always one of Ansermet's most successful records. Lalo's Le Roi d'Ys is full of melodrama and builds up to a particularly exciting finale, while La Dame Blanche receives a suitably more reserved, though delicately stylish, reading...this makes a most welcome reissue, with any slight imperfections of ensemble easily forgiveable in the fresh, lively music-making.
