Notes & Reviews:
The Erato label flourished from the early 1950s. It is defined both by its discerningly chosen repertoire and by the high quality of its artists - brilliant instrumentalists including Marie-Claire Alain (organ), Maurice Andre (trumpet), Lily Laskine (harp), Jean-Pierre Rampal (flute), Helene Grimaud (piano) and outstanding and sympathetic conductors such as Jean-François Paillard, Claudio Scimone, Michel Corboz, John Eliot Gardiner, Marc Minkowski, Ton Koopman and William Christie. Together they recorded a rich catalogue of Baroque - particularly French Baroque - music. Erato's second priority was contemporary music, especially that by French composers. No label has better or so faithfully served this repertoire, and this 50-CD edition includes some of its greatest treasures - Maurice Durufle conducting his Requiem; Pierre Boulez conducting Le Visage nuptial and Le Soleil des eaux, and Stravinsky's Pulcinella; Yvonne Loriod, Boulez and Marius Constant performing Messiaen; Messiaen playing his own Meditations sur le mystere de la Sainte Trinite; and Darius Milhaud conducting two of his symphonies.
