Notes & Reviews:

This is the first album in a series of three featuring ballet, theatre and dance music. This CD features music by French composers including the very popular Arlesienne suites by George Bizet in performances by the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande which has a long standing reputation for its performances of French music.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
L'Arlesienne has been recorded many times. The Plasson is a reconstruction orchestrated for a smaller theater orchestra with chorus and is quite interesting. Masques & Bergamasques has had fewer recordings (Georgiadis, N/D 1998) and is nicely played here. The Faust ballet music has been recorded since the cylinder period. The orchestra plays well.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2014
[Yamada] draws playing both exquisite and passionate from his orchestra. If the colours of Faure's score are very different, they nonetheless tread the same fine line between chamber music economy and the lure of the sensual...Grace abounds in this performance [of Faust].
