Notes & Reviews:

Between 1924 and 1926, the young Georges Auric wrote two ballets for Diaghilev: "Les Facheux" ("The Tormentors"), and "La Pastorale." Both works are regarded as his most important compositions for the ballet. For "Les Facheux", the sets, costumes and curtains were designed by the famous painter Georges Braque. The ballet's scenario tells of a young man who pursues his lover but is held again and again by various tormentors preventing him from explaining his affection. Neither work has been previously recorded, so this exceptional performances mark their recorded premiere!

"This is the second CD in this series that I've reviewed...and if these two discs are any indication, this is a heck of a set...on a very high level and certainly of a good tempo for dancing. I'm not sure if these are the only recordings of these works ever made, but they're certainly the only ones commercially available. Highly recommended."-Fanfare
