Following the magnificent 37-CD box set dedicated to French music, EMI Classics releases a new box set from the great conductor, Michel Plasson. Theses sixteen recordings cover the greatest French Operas of all time and are some of the finest artistic collaborations between Michel Plason and the Orchestre du Capitole de Toulouse.
This 38-CD collection includes masterpiece after masterpiece of astounding French Opera, performed by some the world's greatest voices ever to grace the operatic stage. Included are: Offenbach's View Parisienne, featuring the wonderful Regine Crespin and Mady Mesple; Delibe's Lakme, sung by the always riveting, Natalie Dessay. Jose Van Dam, one of the greatest low-baritones of our time, shines in, Mireille (Freni, 1979), Padmavati (Horne, Gedda, 1982-83), Guerceur (Behrens, 1986), Don Quixote (Berganza and Fondary, 1992) and Herodias (Studer, Heppner, 1994).
