Notes & Reviews:

Based on Oscar Wilde's impassioned text Le Ballade de la Geôle de Reading, Jacques Ibert's first symphonic work astonished and impressed audiences with its dark atmospheres of anguished madness and terror. The Trois Pièces de Ballet portray society guests with colourful music-hall wit, contrasting with the impressionistic symphonic poem Féerique and the horrors of war expressed in Chant de Folie, while the Suite Élisabéthaine introduces ancient styles to enhance Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
