Notes & Reviews:

Igor Markevitch is one of these kind of conductors, having not a discography as high as their unique talent. Every time we listen to one of his recordings both live or studio we realize how modern, original and not conformistic he had been; in his way of reading and conducting the great classical operas and works. This CD completely collects the recordings made by Markevitch of Richard Wagner with the Berliner Philarmoniker and with the Orchestre Lamoureux in Paris in the years 1954 - 1958. The results are comparable to the great Wagner's specialists such as, above all, Herbert von Karajan and Wilhelm Furtwangler. The Claude Debussy's Dance Sacree and Danse Profane complete the CD performed by the Orchestre Lamoureux that Markevitch has taken to the highest levels.
