Notes & Reviews:

This recording by François-Xavier Roth and his period-instrument orchestra Les Siècles features Debussy's orchestral masterpiece La Mer, alongside a previously unrecorded early work, the Première Suite d'orchestre. Little is known about the composition of the suite, other than the fact that the young composer probably wrote it in 1882 while he was still a student at the conservatoire. Although the existence of a first symphonic suite was known, all trace of its manuscript had been lost. Finally located in 2008, the orchestral version was incomplete (the third movement is missing), and the only surviving complete version is one for piano-duet. The Cité de la musique subsequently commissioned Philippe Manoury to complete the orchestration using these sources.
