Notes & Reviews:

Claude Debussy's Le Martyre de Saint Sébastien is a five-act musical mystery play that was produced in collaboration with poet and dramatist Gabriele d'Annunzio and designed as a vehicle for the great ballerina Ida Rubinstein. Unfortunately, in spite of Debussy's transcendent score, the work's first production was not only unsuccessful, it was attended by scandal - the Archbishop of Paris requested Catholics not attend because the dancer playing St. Sebastian was a woman and a Jew. This new recording featuring the Orchestre National de France conducted by Daniele Gatti is a rare event.
