Notes & Reviews:

On this Praga SACD, Manuel Rosenthal conducts the Orchestre du Théatre National de l'Opéra de Paris in Debussy's Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune and the symphonic suite Images, with its surprisingly successful evocation of Spanish culture, despite Debussy's limited knowledge of the country. Even the great Manuel de Falla was surprised by its authenticity. Also included is a performance of La Boîte a Joujoux, Debussy's lavish ballet for a children's puppet show, featuring the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande conducted by Ernest Ansermet. Astoundingly, this work was written during the same period as his Three Poems of Mallarmé.
